- The ruins of the old Cement Works make for a fascinating visit, and are an impressive historical industrial site. They lie just to the south of Warkworth township off State Highway One. The industry was founded here in 1866 and functioned until 1929. During the Second World War the armed forces used the site for demolition practice! The numerous ruins of workshops, kilns, chimneys, and other buildings are generally safe but take care! The area is right on the edge of the Warkworth River and a picturesque spot for a picnic.
