Description: Shepherds Lodge opencast site, 1040 yd. N. 28 degrees E. from Keppil's Column. Looking SW. Opencast coal series. Subsoil stripping. Removal of subsoil continues until the coal seam is bared. Here three tractor-scraper units are stripping shale. The material from the cut forms the mound on the left. An undisturbed face of shale, to be removed in the next cut can be seen on the right of the scrapers.
