The Majority of the actual quarry has been filled in, however large spoil heaps exist at the western and eastern extremities of the workings.

Looking North East toward the quarry, this picture shows the former site of Cunliffe quarry, with the spoil heaps to the east and West.

Spoils to the east and West

Looking North west, both spoil heaps in site, but the quarry between has long since disappeared.
