Former Shell Haven East refinery entrance
Former Shell Haven East refinery entrance
The entrance was moved to here in the 1950s from a location further south close to the railway line. In its heyday I seem to remember the gate pillars were topped by 'Shell' lights as on contemporary petrol pumps. There was a pedestrian entrance to the right which looks as if it may still be there amid the brambles.
