Bombo Quarry

bombo-quarryBombo Quarry has supplied basalt for rail ballast since 1880. Locally known as the "Toothbrush", it would have been a tough place to work. This collection of photos gives a very good idea of what the quarry was. Today it is disused and the award winning local sewerage works is located discreetly and out of site.
