History I nicked from EOA
Pinner quarry is quarry where the drift is mined underground. They used to produce Haslingden flags, building stone, setts and engine beds. It’s main period of use was between 1841 and in 1923. However, there may have been a couple of years use in 1985 / 1986 with five miners.It is mostly a hillside quarry, with the working face to the north. Any spoil was tipped behind. It has a total of eight entrances on the south side, most of which are blocked off.

Explored with @EOA one morning after some other shenanigans elsewhere, I think he'd already been a couple of times before and failed to find the crane... so that was the mission. In my usual fashion I decided against using any of that digital crap, and instead opted for the B&W film. Unfortunately it seems the lab has over-sharpened the images when scanning (cheapo dev & scan ftw) but I've tried to rectify it as much as possible.

Finally, the crane.
