    Been a while since I got my UE boots on...

    History (shamelessly stolen)

    Originally founded by the famous local entrepreneur, Henry Dennis, in 1878 when vast amounts of high quality Etruria Marl clay were discovered in Ruabon. The site was the largest of its kind and constructed immediately adjacent to the clay reserves. An innovation at the time was an endless chain tramway, driven by steam power. This fed the clay directly to the works delivering it at the exact locations required, the same pure Welsh clay is used to the present day.

    A chilled affair, with a dozen chavs on site destined to attract plod, and a big dog next door to let me know I was there. The site has lot's more to offer, with the offices and other storage sheds locked down. Quite a bit is gone from reports or two I've seen from last year, but there is still some goodness about.

    Forgive the odd cliché, it's been a while and my mojo needed a dusting.
