A quarry is shown on 2nd edition OS mapping with an incline plane at its southern end. The mapping shows a well-developed tramway network leading to a cluster of rectangular buildings within the quarry and then leading away westwards to join to the railway line (see NPRN 525496-7). Modern aerial photography shows the quarry to be much extended. The foundations of various phases of buildings can be seen.
