Photos - Tatchell Meldon Quarry Set
These were taken at the LSWR’s Meldon ballast quarry between 1902, when the crusher was rebuilt, and 1908, when it was burned down. The working of Meldon Quarry was described in “The South Western Gazette” for 1 August 1906 and the subsequent fire in the issue dated 1 April 1908. Both articles were reprinted in the April 2002 issue of “South Western Circular”, followed by a further article, including the photographs listed below, in the October 2002 issue.
