This development is for a petrol service station at Duncarbry, Tullaghan. Much of the ground was disturbed for a workshop development some years ago. A small area to the north of the workshop seemed to be the only area of undisturbed ground and monitoring of the removal of topsoil revealed a thin layer of dark-brown soil directly over a stony natural layer, clearly the top of the natural glacial deposits. There were several pieces of crockery, slate and broken horseshoes in the soil.
