776 Pikehall

You won't meet many folk in Upper Gratton Dale as, until the CROW Act, there was no access. But it might have thronged with people for there were plans after it closed in the 1950s to turn Mouldridge Mine into an underground museum. These never materialised and the dale is now a flower lovers' paradise.
