A few points:The dragline that 'walked' made the journey from Exton in Rutland to Harringworth quarry,The nearest a dragline got to Danesholme would have been the one at Gt Oakley quarry,The dragline at Weldon walked across the A43 from Cowthick quarry to Longhills Quarry. There are a couple of DVDs available from East Carlton Park or the Heritage Centre in the Old Village about ironstone quarrying and the building of the dragline at Weldon.
