This had been on the 'to do' list for a while and we finally got round to exploring it. A decent sized sight with some lovely towering machinery.

Apparently, the plant closed in 1997. Prior to this it had been purchased by La Porte Industries and had produced high quality earth and cat litter. Rumour has it that the unusual site and surrounding landscape actually served as an alien landscape for some Dr Who episodes in the 70s.

HDR and regular shots in this report.

Explored with Flame and a good head for heights. :)

What we found to be a social club for the plant:

Not much going on this week:

Inside the main plant room, the scale apparent by how it dwarfed us:

What we guessed were two types of earth handled at the plant:
