Cowdale quarry, limestone extraction and processing site, King Sterndale - High Peak

Cowdale Quarry retains elements of the complete industrial process of lime quarrying and processing within their original setting. Some of the standing structures are in a very bad condition. Intrusive tree and scrub growth is widespread. Environmental scoping advice has been given to inform a planning application for a mineral water bottling plant. Development proposals should include provisions to address the condition of the scheduled monument.
