SH7076 : Waste scree

taken 3 years ago, near to Penmaenmawr, Conwy, Great Britain

Waste scree
Waste scree
Waste material was traditionally simply tipped over the side of the quarry levels - notwithstanding the risk to housing and road users below. Nowadays much of the area has been cleaned up and seeded, or simply overgrown with scrub - but not here. This path was a route for workers at Brundrit's quarries from their company housing in Penmaenan below. Note the collapsed fencing made with scrap lengths of steel screen from the crushing and screening plant supported on scrap rail from the tramways.
