McCabe’s Quarry

The quarry began in Tuatara and then it came to Kakanui then to Weston where it still is working.

This is the work shop where they used to fix the gear.

This is where they used to get the lime out with the dynamite.

The first man to start McCabe's quarry was Gee.

There was a big drum here

Some of it is over 130 years old. Man that is old!!! How old are you?

Crab is really fish bone and lime crushing up because it used to be under water.

It was man power most of the time until they got trucks.
