Stone sorting screens and conveyors - Middlepeak Quarry

Showing the limestone sorting screens and conveyor during their construction. The quarry is located to the north of Wirksworth, near the National Stone Centre. It was formerly run by Stewart and Lloyd, and Bown and Shaw. Middlepeak quarry is not in use at the moment, but Tarmac has secured planning permission for quarrying there for at least 20 years.
