Shingle foreshore at Barton Cement Works
Shingle foreshore at Barton Cement Works
The red and white 'stones' are reminders of the two principal industries along this part of the Humber bank - cement and tilemaking. The white pebbles are lumps of hard chalk deemed unsuitable for kilning for cement, and the red are cast-off tiles. The River provided a convenient dump for all sorts of waste material.
