Park Pit
A group of Bulrushes on the edge of Park Pit with the sand processing plant in the background. 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.

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