A granite quarry on the cliffs called the East Sidelands on Lundy. The quarry was initiated by the Lundy Granite Company in 1863 and ceased trading in 1868. It consists of five cliffside workings with their spoil heaps, a terrace revetted by massive stone walls serving as access to the workings, a floor for a light railway to each of the workings, a dressing floor, two inclines to carry the machinery to lift and lower the stone from the workings to a landing beach, two buildings for stabling and storage, and a time hut for the staff to supervise the operation. Scheduled.
