Gas exhausters, Hawthorn Coking Works, Murton
Gas exhausters, Hawthorn Coking Works, Murton
These steam turbine driven exhausters pulled the gas off the coke oven batteries. This side of the plant was just like a traditional town gas plant.
The plant closed in 1984 and was demolished in 1989. It was past its best when I visited.
