In 1895 there was a "quern or ancient British millstone" in the vicarage grounds at Hope that had been found during the excavations of the Dore and Chinley railway. (1). The vicarage garden is overgrown and a quern was not located. (2).
The upper stone of a beehive-type quern was found during the construction of the Dore and Chinley railway in c. 1889. It is in Derby Museum, Acc. No. 38-1926. (3)
