TQ2250 : Stockpiles and weighbridge

taken 5 years ago, near to Buckland, Surrey, Great Britain

Stockpiles and weighbridge
Stockpiles and weighbridge
Adjacent to the sand processing plant at Park Pit. Park Pit ceased to operate as a sand quarry in 1990 but processing of sand from nearby Tapwood Pit continued until 2014. Plans are being considered for conversion of Park Pit for leisure use. Regardless of the outcome, the processing plant is due to be removed by the last operators of the site, Hanson, during the first part of 2015, once these last few stocks of sand have been cleared.

There is currently no public access to the site, this photo being taken on a private tour arranged for the Betchworth & Buckland Society.
