Wor bucket's bigger than yours

  • Description

    The P&H 757 Walking dragline, known as "Ace of Spades", is the largest in Europe and was assembled in Stobswood Opencast site, the largest hole in Europe (before it was filled in). It's being taken to bits soon and sent to America in little boxes, where it will be put back together to dig another big hole in the ground. As I was taking this shot from the roadside, I was accosted by a site manager and invited onto the site next Thursday for some proper shots. WoooHooo.
