Walking into Duke's Quarry (photo by Phil Ashton)
A rather obscure venue, with one great climb that makes a visit worthwhile. Quarried gritstone, variable quality. Low lying and sheltered, but often green and damp due to shading trees. Best visited on a sunny spring day before the trees are in full leaf.
This quarry is in the south of the Peak District, just off the A6, south of Cromford near Whatstandwell. Follow a track from parking by the B3035 to Crich. Duke's is the first of several well-hidden quarries.
