The back of the quarry area

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Taken from near SH1 this photo shows the dent in the hill caused by James McDonald's quarrying at his first North Otago kiln.

On the hill the method of quarrying is obviously by pick and blasting. The rock is very hard and full of shells. The quarry is noted in The Waitaki District Council's Operative District Plan Appendix C as an area of significant conservation value, however it does not have protection yet.
