Middleton Industrial Estate
Middleton Industrial Estate
This industrial estate is on the site of Trimpell Works (derived from Trinidad Leasing, Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and Shell), which included an oil refinery and chemical works. The oil was piped from a jetty which extended NW from Heysham Harbour to deep water at Heysham Lake (SD3960). The refinery was closed in the 1970s.
It is now officially known as Heysham Business Park.
This area has been converted to a community wood - Middleton Wood. The trees have yet to mature.
