Jul 19, 2008 · Eccleston Delph, a flooded quarry in the heart of Lancashire, was never meant to reveal its gruesome secret. But the body of Martin Johnstone never hit the bottom. Instead it came to rest on a ledge after the perpetrators of the most notorious deed in the history of crime in the North West, had bundled him over the edge.
Delph? Why is it also called Delph? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 02:44, 7 September 2014 (UTC) Likeliest from the old verb "delve" = "dig", because it was a quarry. Anthony Appleyard 04:22, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Doffcocker Delf and Delph Hole quarries is in Bolton.

An area behind Horrobin Farm has been filled in many years ago but the shape of the old quarry is still apparent on aerial photos.
