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. Historic England gave advice to inform a planning application for a mineral water bottling plant, encouraging provisions to address the condition of the scheduled monument. The development has not progressed. The site has various low key uses. Unauthorised access and damage has been reported.
