Wow, strange. Great shot, but what is this?

It is part of a works that used to process the local limestone. This is one of several large circular tanks. There used to be paddles, attached to the central tower and a track on the edge of the tank, that rotated to stir the contents. The site is being demolished at the moment.

There are so many demolition/dereliction photographs of this site on the internet. Many are exceptional!
Have you ever wondered what the site was about or how important it was during WWII? For a potted history and pictures go to
