    Go easy Guys, first site report

    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.

    The site was completely empty, tile stacks across doors but some access. Being my first site visit, I took it easy and only went in a few workshops and stores. Lots more to explore and picture
