A small undeveloped quarry is located 100 metres north-west of Haytor Quarry comprising a pit with an exposed working face together with overburden and waste stone dumps. It is of particular interest because although never connected to the main tramway a short section of tramway was used to haul waste material onto its germinal spoil haep. Sections of this track still remain.
