Bonhill Quarry :: Shared Description

The quarry, which is now disused, was worked for its Old Red Sandstone. It appears on the first-edition OS map (surveyed in 1864), and later expanded southwards (as shown on the map revision of 1896), but it was labelled "disused" on the map revision of c.1914. The quarry was still in use in 1891 (in that year, three men were injured in an accident while blasting with gunpowder). A smaller disused quarry is located about 250 metres ENE of it: Link

These Shared Descriptions are common to multiple images. For example, you can create a generic description for an object shown in a photo, and reuse the description on all photos of the object. All descriptions are public and shared between contributors, i.e. you can reuse a description created by others, just as they can use yours.
