NT3667 : Opencast Pit

taken 12 years ago, near to Cousland, Midlothian, Great Britain

Opencast  Pit.
Opencast Pit.
This land has seen some big changes. Once a railway crossed here serving a colliery. Then it was a quarry, probably an opencast coal mine. It is still shown as a quarry on the current OS 1:25 000 map. Now it has been backfilled and is productive arable land. View north towards Arthur's Seat.
