This disused sandstone quarry lies in Lower Haughton close to Arden Bridge over the river Tame. A map of 1848 shows that this quarry was being worked at this time.

There was another sandstone quarry in Haughton Green, situated on the west side of Haughton Green Road a short distance south west of the Clarke's Arms (subsequently The Top House and then, briefly, a convenience store).

These stone-built cottages were provided for quarrymen working in the sandstone quarry and the datestone in the centre of the row shows that they were built in 1868.
