Description: Glebe Quarry, Saltcoats. Ayrshire. Small-scale quarrying of the Ayrshire Bauxitic Clay. The clay occurs at the top of Millstone Grit (Carboniferous age) lavas. The quarry face extends about 100 yards and further north-east the seam could be traced in the sides of the railway-cutting between the Caledonian Station and the Raise Road. A small mine occurred in a field corner at the northern end of the Raise Road. The seam has been traced from Saltcoats to near Kilmarnock, a distance of almost 15 miles and is by no means homogeneous. It is made up of a series of lenticular patches of different materials which have no great lateral extent and are of widely varying composition.
