You covered the events of the evening really well @LashedLlama wasnt expecting too much out of this place but had just enough Derpyness to make it good. Photos are nicely lit, was that the dual light painting? You need to get yourself a Lenser now

Yeah I remember the "main event" but wasnt exploring then....actually remember the whole lot live when it was Blue Circle! Huge site.

Probably best we dont return too soon though.
My dad used to work there in the '70s for Blue Circle...

Like it, the dusty covered machines, shoots etc make for nice shots. My father was very high up in Blue Circle cement, as mentioned above. He managed sites all over Kent. So im guessing this one too would of been managed by him & others. Nice to see it, as my dad died at 30. So to see this is quite good for me. Thank you :D
My father also worked there in the '70s. He designed dust filters for the chimneys. He may well have known ur father.

Yep my father was there until he went to Kenya, as he wanted to oversee the building of the Nairobi bridge, as he had input into its design. This build was connected to Blue Circle and he died whilst at work out there in 1978. So they well could of known each other. My father also was in charge of blowing up the old cement factory in Greenhithe, so I spent many a day roaming that site. Started young lol

My father also worked at greenhithe- used to call it Research. Met my mum there. After that closed and Rugby took over the Halling site he ended up office bound in Gravesend...
