This disused sandstone quarry lies in Lower Haughton near 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 and the 1848 map shows that this was off the west side of Haughton Green Road near where Bowker Avenue is now located.

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.
