Three groups of industrial structures in Berry Head quarry are visible on aerial photographs taken between 1946 and 1969. One appears to have been an elevated structure, which is visible between circa SX9441056721 and SX9452756653, presumably to link the processing areas to the quay. Although most of the structural components appear to have been removed since the closure of the quarry, some of the walls and flooring seem to be visible on aerial photographs taken in 2012. The industrial structures are modern in date and so have not been transcribed as part of this project.
