Opencast remains
Opencast remains
Recent area of opencast coal working now being used as a dump for waste material from a nearby fireclay pit near the farm of Common (NS5822). Formerly a minor road crossed this area providing a link to the Cronberry road (NS5722). This was destroyed during the opencast operations and so far has not been reinstated. In the past there was a primary school quite close to this location which gives some idea of the size of population once living in this part of Airds Moss.
