Ash lagoon, West Pans
Ash lagoon, West Pans
Once a waste product, fly ash from coal fired power stations is now used by several industries. It is stored here prior to being carried away. Picture shows the deposits being quarried and sprinklers for keeping the ash wet (possibly to prevent it turning to a hard stone). Further west in NT3473 and NT3573, the ash has been dumped forming new land, some of which is a nature reserve.
