This site owned by Midland Quarry Products closed in 2008 after finally running out of stone. There had been quarrying on the hills for over 200 years. It used to quarry the local stone called "Rowley Rag"
Rowley Rag was a volcanic dolerite stone quarried in the stone quarries (known locally as the 'Quacks') of the Rowley Hills in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom. During the 1980s and 1990s, the quarry on Rowley Hill in Rowley Regis was used as a landfill site. There is now a golf driving range on top of this disused quarry and landfill.

The main use of the Rowley Rag stone was in the production of road surfaces.

Wish I'd discovered this sooner. You might see from the map(top right) that there would of been more buildings and machinery originally. Unless they were dismantled quickly, scrapped or re-used. Would of made a more exciting explore.

Love the xenomorph comment! I live 2 minutes from here, have popped in frequently over the last 3 years. Shame the last 18 months has seen the local dick heads getting in and trashing it, setting fires and what not. So police are always prowling now.
