Ashford: The Marble Forks in this village, where the black and grey marbles found in the vicinity are sawn and polished, were the first of the kind ever established in Great Britain. They were originally constructed about sixty years ago, by the late Mr. Henry Watson, of Bakewell: but though a patent was obtained to secure the profits of the invention, the advantages were not commensurate with the expectations that had been formed. The present proprietor is Mr. John Platt, architect of Rotherham, ir. Yorkshire, who rents the quarries at Ashford, where the black marble is obtained.
