All track work within such a place as this is "temporary". It's moved to keep up with the face of the quarry. Also note that the track seems to be in straight sections, which are curved on site to requirements.

The raw material is Blue Lias, consisting of alternating layers of argillaceous limestone and calcareous shale. All the limestone and a little of the shale were used to make cement rawmix, but most of the shale was discarded. The mixture of rock could be separated on a rotary screen, since the shale was soft and would fall through. The waste shale was then stacked in a worked-out part of the deposit.
