Last day at work so time tomess around doing a report :D
As prev reports I genuinely cant find much about this place but believe it was just a quarry & processing area for products used in the nearby cement works (which I believe is also closed down, not sure if anyone has checked that out?)

Whatever it is, its one of the biggest damn holes Iv seen & access forces you precariously close to the edge!

Visited here with @Down and beyond after a mad underground trip & it was a pleasant surprise, I have a lot of pics so will just get on with teh industrial goodness.

Very good mate, Westbury cement works is one of my favourites. I visited it 8 years ago, it was mothballed then and AFAIK subsequently demolished, perhaps leaving a cement depot using the silos? It's funny, the raw mill in your shots sits inside a concrete framed portal shed that's just like a scale model of the much bigger cement kilns sitting under their much bigger concrete portals. It was a cool place, much more intact than Shoreham.

Worth checking that there isn't something explorable left on the main site. I heard that there had been a big demo exercise at Westbury, but as you know parochial explorers (particularly on another forum) love to tell you sites have disappeared just so that they can keep them to themselves... ;)
