001.15 This name though well known, seems to be used more for the purpose of distinction from the other Quarries in the neighbourhood, than as a proper name. The Old Quarry S.W. of it was also called "Milton" when in use - about 10 years ago. At present the name is not applied to the old Quarry, but seems to have been revived on the opening to distinguish it. The name is taken from the Quarry being on the lands of Milton. It employs 30 men, has been two years in use * is wrought by Neilson & Law. This Quarry can't go or work in any direction, without interfering with the Railway or the Toll Road.
