1. Have you ever wondered what happens at Mount Shadwell Quarry?

    In our film we show you how the Mount Shadwell Quarry works. We interview Keith Hargreaves the manager of the quarry, about his job. We show you pan shots of the quarry by Taylah Casson and also a time-lapse by Emily Walsh and Isla Rous. Our footage is conducted at the quarry only but captures different jobs in different places.
