While part of the old quarry is still in productive use, an area has already been restored in stages over the past 50 years using cement kiln dust from Rugby. That work continued in 2011-12 following a new planning permission which allowed the landfilling of inert material being transferred from the old Parkfield Road quarry in Rugby.
Other areas have regenerated naturally and are home to a legion of wildlife. Butterflies – including some now rare species – thrive on the quarry vegetation and are the subject of a project designed to create further flower-rich grassland.
In April 2010, we announced plans for the extension of the quarry into an area known as Spiers Farm as a means of ensuring high quality raw material for cement making.
