NZ5035 : Steetley Magnesite

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Hartlepool, Great Britain

Steetley Magnesite
Steetley Magnesite
Established in 1938 to extract magnesia from seawater with the aid of lime, the site eventually closed in 2005. It was partially demolished, first by contractors and then asset stripped for its scrap metal. The site was sold for housing but until now, nesting birds and the recession had put these plans on hold, but as I write bulldozers are flattening what remains.
