Clatchards Quarry Newburgh North Fife

Clatchards Quarry Newburgh North Fife as viewed from Dunbog. It is now owned and worked by Enstone Thistle, It is an immense excavation which is slowly but surely removing a very large hill to be dispersed as tarmac, railway ballast, hard core and blinding. This process has gone on for well over a hundred years, once employing boats at Newburgh on the River Tay, a rail connection but now all goes by road. My fear, and I really wish it isn't the case that it will become a massive landfill site.
