The works were located at the former quarry at Balgeddie half a mile north-north-west of Leslie Bridge, Fifeshire. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7538. The Charlestown Main Limestone of the Carboniferous Lower Limestone Group was mined here between 1870 and 1902. The thickness worked was about ten feet under 24 feet of shale and the quality deteriorated eastwards. There are a number of more or less discontinuous outcrops and many old workings in the high ground between Falkland and Leslie.
