After being contacted by Ball Eye Quarry (Cromford) about some old business papers they had found in a building that was being demolished we whad to go down for a closer look. We ended up coming away with lots of papers and seismic data but also with a rather nice explosive store. This style would have been in use from the 1950s through to 1990s and so it was delivered to the National Stone Centre. It has some work to be done on it but will then be at the entrance to the M1 Quarry, named after the motorway which it provided stone for, as it fits that period of working. Our thanks go to Collins Earthworks Ltd who are working Ball Eye Quarry and delivered the very heavy container to the NSC.
