Located at the Rishton side of New Rishton Reservoir, this quarry existed in 1848, but other than that very little is known about it.

Situated to the side of Ponthalgh Manor on the East side, and New Barn Farm on the West side. Now in modern times it over looks the M65 motorway (The road lights can be seen in the photograph)

In the trees beyond the road lights lies the Dunkenhalgh Manor house.

The Hyndburn Brook runs to the base of the quarry, where it runs into a tunnel and goes to meet the River Hyndburn.
