Mining Surveyors carving, Lasswade Old Kirkyard
Apparently unique in Scotland, this headstone was erected in 1767 by John Ross, overseer at Melville coalworks, for his wife Marion McKenzie. It shows a surveyor holding a plumb line while another supports the level on his shoulder with a clinometer between them for measuring inclines.
