Right Not much history But did find out that Whitwick is listed in The Doomsday Book

During 1893, the operation at Whitwick Quarry was commenced. It would appear that the first quarry was dug at the site of Forest Rock Wood, reference to this name can be found during 1923, where the quarry was previously called Forest Rock Quarry. Some time later, circa 1929, a second quarry appears to have been commenced in Peldar Tor, which is the site of the existing quarry and is officially referred to as Springhill Quarry, Peldar Tor, Whitwick, Leicestershire, England, UK.

Looks like the site closed in 08/09 but this year an application to have the plant running 24/7 was made and passed
