Derbyshire Quarry... Near Dove Holes... I am unsure what it has been used for, and i am truely awful with industrial machines and their uses, i think rock crushing equiment and conveyabelts certainly make up some of this machinery...

(I couldn't deside whether this should be in military or industrial??)

Interesting bunker thing near by...



Other interesting machinery...





Picture of the whole quarry.. Whats that interesting 'bump' at the back there i hear you say??



THIS is the interesting thing!


It has CHIMNEYS!



Someones half assed attempt to get in...



Tantalising glimpse of inside the wall...



VERY interesting hole round the back... They used some kind of super mortar though...

It's magazine, the vents where to keep air circulating thus keeping the powder dry.
