40 Flat Hill Quarry?
Bonnie Manzon (aka Bonnie Ko) recently left a comment attached to our article,Hong Kong Clays and Kaolin Company (香港磁泥有限公司) – Kaolin Mine, Cha Kwo Ling. “As a very young mother of three, we were living in ” the Bungalow” on the mining site of Hk Clays and Kaolin Co. in Cha Kwo Ling Village from 1980 to 1983.
I have bittersweet and life changing memories. I often wonder how things have changed.
Four years ago I made a journey to visit the grave of Ko Ming Fan who ran the Flat Hill Quarry.”
HF: I have not come across Flat Hill Quarry before. I asked Tymon Mellor, a frequent contributor on mines to our website if he could provide any information about Flat Hill.
Tymon: I can’t find anything on Flat Hill Quarry, however there is an unnamed hill next door to Rocky Hill [in the Cha Ko Ling area]. You can see from this 1924 map they have started to excavate into this hill.
HF: If you can provide further information about this quarry and its location please leave a comment below this article or email the Indhhk Group directly.
In the middle of the site is a grave, I took some photos a couple of years back:
