    Default Atlas aggregates.suffolk


    a little visit back to this place one evening.it was part of a large quarry site that shut several yrs ago.most of the old gravel pits have been made into lakes and now heavily used for fishing.i really wanted to see the dragline here its rather nice,there is also an old forklift.i still cant work out what the long row of bays were used for with the little tracks running down each one.

    Those shots are amazing. Its quite cool to see all the mechanical parts all intact, just heavily rusted...

    Krela, can you delete my cock-up? Cat walked across key board and my attempts at removing produce nothing! I was going to add just the following reply content -

    In a working quarry I visited many years ago, the tracked bays were used for storing the the sieve frames used to grade the production from the quarry. No idea if this place used the same type of equipment.
