When a Second World War bomb was discovered on a building site in West Yorkshire in late 2016- the disposal team needed a secure location to carry out a controlled explosion. Due to the location of our main excavation site our quarry was ideal.
We were contacted by the Army Disposal Team and asked if Soil Hill Quarries (Yorkshire) Ltd could help,we were only too happy to assist. We dug a hole to a depth of 2 metres where the devise was set.
The Army Bomb disposal team did the rest.
Great team effort!!
