Never been in I'm afraid but I do rather like the scarp faces of Cronkley Fell as it's untamed and the numerous waterfalls down to Bleabeck Force can be rather splendid in wet weather, Warcop ranges have been a bit of a double-edged sword in that respect.

Cheers for that, hmm 200 metres, the book says over 300 but I suppose it could be wrong. Did you see any mineralization?
Cool

1878 Factory Act: Quarrys are any place not being a mine in which persons work in getting slate, stone, coal or other minerals. Which begs the question: what is a mine??
