The limestone quarry at Wakerley does not appear on the 1886, yet is shown as quite extensive by 1900. By then there were twelve kilns scattered in an area running parallel to the railway. Today there are four kilns remaining plus vestiges of another. The bowls of the kilns are with one exception wide and shallow whilst the draw tunnels are semi-circular brick structures with a flat ceiling comprising steel bars with flat stone above.
