Buildings of the Emborough Stone Co. Ltd seen from a southbound train. Unknown date but may be winter 1965/6.

Originally the location of a brick and tile works and the Somerset Fullers Earth and Ochre Co. Ltd., the stone company later took over the quarry. The Ochre company is still shown on the 1902 OS map, but was simply Emborough Quarries by 1929.
