Description: Dora Opencast Site area E, near Cowdenbeath, Fife. Looking north-east. Stoop and room workings in the Lochgelly Splint and Parrot coals of the Carboniferous Limestone Coal Group. A face-shovel rope excavator can be seen on the left. Recent opencast coal mining has uncovered evidence of much older underground workings. The stoop and room method is a system of working by which the coal is extracted from its bed in a series of galleries or rooms leaving pillars or stoops to support the roof.
