History

Crich quarry was a medium sized quarry located in the small Derbyshire town of Crich.

Operated at first by The Clay Cross Company, with a metre gauge railway running through which was built by George Stephenson.

It closed in 1958, and then reopened in the 1960's for the building of motorways across the country.

RMC and Tarmac operated it using road haulage, before passing to Aggregate Industries ownership in 2000, it then closed in 2010 due to a downturn in sales.

The explore

Visited early on a sunny sunday morning in April with nobody around at all.

Very easy access. I know this has been done to death but it was my first visit here.
