We just want to say a huge thank you to George for all of his hard work at our Miller's Dale reserve.
George has been involved in the site since negotiations took place around 1970.
Quarrying had ceased on site in the 1930s because of the danger of the limestone quarry face slipping on the volcanic bed which turned to clay when exposed. ICI owned the quarry back then and wanted to dispose of it. They offered it to the Peak National Park Authority which agreed to accept it as derelict land if the big concrete crushing plant was blown up.
