The quarries at Cauldon Low and Froghall provided limestone for the agricultural and pottery industries.

At one time thousands of men were employed in the quarrying and transportation of this mineral, either by canal or rail.

The last "sand train" from BIS (British Industrial Sand) ran down the Churnet Valley in 1988. The line is still in place, but has been mothballed.

This place is a gem with a three story maintenance workshop with what looks like untouched spares and repairs from many years ago. Even walking round the rest of the site the dust piles measure from a couple of mm to a couple of inches, I only saw one other set of footprints (J4M35 I rekon) .
