Silos looking north

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

These were indoor silos when the plant was running. They were inside the large steel-framed iron-clad building on the site and would have held the raw materials for the cement process. Ground limestone, coal, clay, silica sand, gypsum etc. As far as I am aware silos were not used to store cement - it was bagged as soon as it was made.
