    Default Thamesteel - Sheerness - Oct 12


    Thamesteel, in Sheerness, Kent was a steel foundry until January 2012. The owners of the plant went into administration and workers came to work to be told that they no longer had a job. Nothing has happened since that day, everything lays exactly as it was, just with a layer of dust covering every last bit of history which was left behind. Another victim of Britain's lack of support for industry.
    Big thanks to Wevsky for the heads up on this one, visited with another explorer........plenty of activity on site with workers and machinery moving around so quite a bit of cat and mouse.

    But he who kisses the joy as it flies. Lives in eternity's sunrise.

    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !

    Good news from From Meridian News, august 2012;
    The joint administrators of Thamesteel Limited have announced that the company has been sold out of administration to a new company owned by the Al-Tuwairqi Group.
    New Saudi-based owner ATG was expected to restart steel production at the Sheerness facility, and re-employ many of the jobs lost when the company entered administration.
