Taylor's sand pit

 Filled Landfill Site Since the 1970s disused sand pits have been utilised as landfill sites. Although this has the benefit of restoring land to agricultural or amenity usage, on the debit side there is the loss of certain landscape features which have become interesting over the years and also the destruction of the wild-life which has colonised these pits.  in Tandridge District we will soon have no example left of the vertical sand cliff faces, which exemplify former quarrying methods.
