This is a Geological Conservation Review Site. This site partially overlaps with St. Dunstan's Well Catchment SSSI.
The main exposures are cut in very steeply-dipping Carboniferous Limestone. This was the original locality for the type section of the proposed ‘Cookswoodian Stage’.
Planning permission for the disused quarry has been granted to turn it into a holiday retreat.
