Quarrying overview

Tarmac Quarry Products and the National Stone Centre encourage school groups to visit their quarries. Dene Quarry in the Derbyshire Dales often becomes congested, so a viewpoint panel has been mounted on a rock overlooking the main operations. It describes the geology, quarry workings, and long-term restoration plans and displays a simplified flow diagram of the processing plant. Schools doing in-depth projects can still visit the plant itself by arrangement. Details: National Stone Centre, Ravenstor Road, Wirksworth, Derbyshire DE4 4FY. Tel: 01629 824833 825403.
