Derelict Industrial Works, Stanford-le-Hope
Derelict Industrial Works, Stanford-le-Hope
The embankment on the left carries the single track Thames Haven branch line, which had a siding to this site (see TQ7081 : Thames Haven branch - disused Fisons connection) which is now totally derelict. The site was originally a Fisons plant which produced ammonium nitrate from ammonia piped in from the adjacent Shell Haven refinery. The product was loaded in liquid form at the gantry on the left into steam-heated insulated rail tank cars and transported in block trains to other Fisons fertilizer works at Immingham and Avonmouth.
