DCA would also be in favour of a strategic restoration scheme being developed for the quarries to the west of the A515 near Buxton. Prior to any infilling of these sites DCA would like to be given the opportunity to survey the sites for any new cave or mine passage that may have been exposed during the quarry operations so that these can be surveyed and photographed. In some cases, we may wish to consider maintaining an access to the entrance of any significant find. This can usually be accomplished quite easily by the installation of pipes and/or concrete manhole rings.
