nice day for a stroll in the..........mud :banghead

meet up with rigsby, larey and rooks for an nice little walk round the cement works, seeing the big chimney in the distance we couldnt get there quick enough,having a look on google earth the places looks massive, but i didnt expect it to be this big even inside the machines are massive

we covered about 70% of the big stuff and looked in most of the sheds but didnt do the silos, the weather was coming in and it was getting late before we knew it we where walking in the darkness to get out

oh and this is the first place i have seen with a speed camera on site,i guess to catch staff speeding about, but it was a little to close to the security hut to get a pic so i will leave it to someone else to get:crazy

cheers all was a good day out :thumb

entrance to the big hanger for storing the raw mix, cement dust has reshaped the entrance and looks melted

inside the hanger the rawmixl/clincker waiting to be processed

big boys toys

some of the storage silio's

i think this was the gasometer but i could be wrong :crazy

the big chimney

the big rotary kiln building

next up we headed in to see the rotary kilns, the colours in here are amazing, the rusted metals the different colour lights, they all just had a nice glow about them, the hot end was all dark and warm and the exhaust end was all dusty and cold looking


rooks inside no1 heater, giant size fans use to blow the warm in from the kilns below, this one has been disconected

this is no1 kiln deep under the rotary,warm and wet still and loads of flashing lights

no2 heat exchanger still connected up

no2 rotary


these are the driving gear used to rotate the drum they are positioned every 100ft or so

no1 rotary down at the cold end looking back up to the hot end, this is where the drum meets the exhaust's that lead to the chimney


another drive wheel

control room for the older smaller rotarys that they have in place, we couldnt find the 2 big ones

then we started to head out, but then i guess it wouldnt be right to leave with out seeing the live part that is still in use, this place bags up all the cement in brand new hitech looking machines the feeds them in to the warehouse



keys where in it


these compressors look like they where fitted last week
