Moody Monday……. A Redundant Industrial Site


An abandoned Gritstone Millstone in Padley Gorge, Derbyshire.

A quiet wooded Derbyshire Gorge.  One – time it would be far from a quiet location.  One of many working stone cutting quarries initially shaping random gritstone boulders in to valuable Millstones and grinding wheels. Technology moved on and the need dried up and a once very valuable industry died.

Moody Monday, woody November weather but please still..

Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
