Within (or very close to) the SCRCA, there are dozens (perhaps hundreds) of quarries and pits that were either created or enlarged to provide the raw materials needed to build the Settle-Carlisle Railway. After the successful conclusion of the seven year construction project, most of these quarries and pits were abandoned. A small number of these quarries and pits are being included in the SCRCA Project database because they are associated with a key part of construction story.
