The money below our feet
Wick has been associated with limestone quarrying for many years. In the nineteenth century there was a number of smaller pits and workings but the largest of today's is comfortably bigger still. Cemex are the operators of the quarry and have permitted the founding of the reserve in the early 2000s.
