Eldon Hill quarry

There a digger working on the entrance track to the quarry at the moment.  Anyone know what's going on?

Sorting the deep potholes and 'moat' out on the lane ahead of some filming in the quarry. DCA are working up there on some shafts for the farmer, so I've been passed the digger and driver a few times. Done a good job of the track.
I have no idea what they will be filming there, but maybe give the quarry caves a miss for a week or two.

Thought it might be a TSG dig!

We're digging from the Chapel with The Mole, so we'll come out there, not go in ;)

Do you think we could get a digger up to longcliffe?

I'm keen to hear from anyone passing Eldon Quarry this week if it looks like they are still filming up there. Got a DCA job about to start nearby but they are obviously taking over the parking.
Let me know when you passed and if there were vehicles or signs there please. Ta!

Doesn't seem like the most sensible location for that ...

The Quarry and the Peak Forest to Sparrowpit back road will be shut from 10th August to 10th September.
They are working in the quarry right now, so assume trips to sites there are out until Sept 10th. Access to Eldon Hole might be affected as the road is shut.
