    Did this back in April but forgot to post it on 28DL's return. Anyhow its a nice little explore with plenty of heavy machinery for you industrial boffs.

    Background:

    The company is renowned for its refined sugar cane products, and especially for 'Lyle's Golden Syrup'. The Lyle's Golden Syrup trademark depicts a lion and a swarm of bees, as well as a quotation from the Bible. Samson was travelling to the land of the Philistines in search of a wife and during the journey he killed a lion, and on his return past the same spot he noticed that a swarm of bees had formed a comb of honey in the carcass (Judges, Chpt. 14)

    Henry Tate established his Liverpool refinery in 1872, and Tate & Lyle built their huge concrete sugar silo in the 1950s, close to the Liverpool docks. A huge conveyor tower was constructed next to it, and this was used to bring sugar up from ships in Huskisson Dock. The sugar was then transported via several other conveyors into the top of the silo.

    Once in the silo, an overhead railway system was used to distribute the sugar along the length of the silo. The hopper ran along on a track, depositing the sugar through big grills positioned between the rails. Today the silo tower is in a state of disrepair, but the silo itself is still used and is Grade II listed. [source: Level Two]
