Orgreave Coking Works
Orgreave Coking Works
The big structure with an arched opening is the quenching tower. Emerging from the hole is the blue locomotive and attached coke car (lack of smoke suggests this is not containing a freshly discharged (unquenched) load. The round structure with a conical bottom is almost certainly the quenching water header tank. The structure behind is almost certainly the coal conveying plant feeding the bunkers that charge the loading cars running on top of the battery.
