The Heights Quarry works exposures of the Great Limestone for aggregate, and is developed on the former site of the underground Heights Mine. The old underground workings have long been inaccessable for the most part, but recent quarry operations have exposed portions of the Heights South and West Cross veins, once again allowing the occasional recovery of specimens.
