TL8564 : British Sugar factory in its own mist

near to Bury st Edmunds, Suffolk, Great Britain

British Sugar factory in its own mist
British Sugar factory in its own mist
It was a somewhat misty day but at this point the factory was enveloped in a mist of its own making, coming from the factory chimney.

It is commonly known as the Sugar Beet Factory, or the Sugar Factory, even though it makes neither. The stuff coming out of the chimney gets called steam or smoke and neither of those are right either - a small child that described it as the cloud factory was largely right.

In the foreground we see the junction of Springfield Road and Spring Lane, and behind that the site of the demolished garage of Opus Cars, which features extensively in Geograph.

To the right of the sugar refinery we can see the walkways of a fully descended gas holder.
