Burmah-Castrol Refinery, Stanlow
Grid ref is approximate as this was a large site and has been long cleared.
The picture shows the Dubs plant. This was basically all American kit with Worthington steam pumps and Erie-Ball rotative steam engines. Other areas had long rows of large steam pumps and there was a big power house with turbo-alternator sets and no working lights. This might be the first geograph inside an oil refinery.
