    Opened in 1974 as a state of the art toxic waste incineration plant it wasn't long before the site had left a bad taste in the mouth of local residents!

    Dealing with low-grade Nuclear waste and other toxic by-products from the electronics industry the plant faced heavy opposition during its lifetime and after dealing with the incineration of BSE infected carcasses the plant finally closed late in 2002 with the loss of some 50 jobs.

    Some interesting reading..

    The site is now currently still under a 10 year decontamination process although little seems to have changed on site in the last few years.
