Quarr Limestone Quarry (United Kingdom)

Quarr limestone was used in the late 11th century to build Canterbury and Chichester cathedrals.
Ironically the modern Benedictine Quarr Abbey is built entirely in brick.
Its Cistercian predecessor was founded in 1131and was built in stone from the local quarries, as was Carisbrooke castle.
