There were eleven businesses at Quarry End. These included:
- Radleigh Insulation Supplies
- Castle Ironworks
- Fenchurch Catering Equipment
- Lowland Leather Finishers
- Sentry SuperSacks
Quarry end had a main access road with five smaller roads which, at right angles, branched off to metal, brick and concrete buildings. They were near Leigh Hill which had been, in the 19th century, used by quarry workers. 
Around the perimeter, was a metal mesh fence and spikes on top of that. There were sturdy iron gates which were closed and padlocked.
