Super Quarry Sabotaged

Super Quarry Sabotaged

Towards the end of last year the super quarry at Bardon Hill in Leictershire was sabotaged. This is the flagship quarry of Bardon Aggrigates, subsiduary of Aggrigate Industries, the company removing mountain tops for roadstone in Glensanda Scotland. Bardon Hill Quarry is a mile across and over quarter of a mile deep, and is removing a hillside that is designated as a SSSI. They are planning to extend this quarry to new areas using over three miles of conveyers to transport the stone. During the week bore holes were dug for the new expansion visitors climbed down into the quarry over night destroying engines and hydrulics, gluing locks, and drilling tires. You could stand in the buckets of the excavators and the wheels of the trucks were over eight feet tall. 3 excavtors, 1 bulldozer, and 4 dumper trucks were sabotaged.
