Dragline going past Boughton House gates

We've been reliably informed that this image shows a Face Shovel (not a dragline) being loaded onto a trailer, after being removed from the ironstone quarry. This entrance to the quarry was opposite the Boughton House Lodge Gate on the A43 (now the A4300). Note the two men securing the face shovel. Can you see the policeman? And his bicycle?
