Public access to the quarry is not authorised and quarries are dangerous places.

The quarry to the south of the village is called Wickwar Quarry but is equally close to Charfield and particularly Churchend. Operated by Cemex, the business inevitably impacts the village and the company works to reduce or mitigate that impact.

There are regular liaison meetings between the quarry company and the local parish councils and residents, and these have in recent years been chaired by the Charfield Parish Council chairman. Minutes of these meetings can be found by selecting the Cemex Liaison category in Simple Search.
