A bit of an educated(?) guess but I’m thinking that this is an open-cast coal mine site.

My reasoning is:

(a) Appearance in some of this set of images of a dark seam well below the original ground level and this dark material (coal?) being removed by lorry;

(b) LAING contractors sign on some earthmoving equipment (John Laing & Son had a contract for some such work round about 1948.

The location is far less certain but one POSSIBLE area is Heanor/ Carrington Farm/ Shipley Hall/ Mapperley/ Smalley area, west of Nottingham. There were a few open-cast mines being worked here in the late 1940s. One of them – Carrington – used a very large dragline excavator, on two ‘feet’ rather than caterpillar tracks. To see these, search BritainfromAbove using “opencast” as the key word.
