    ""
    Coalite was manufactured by the Low Temperature Carbonisation Company, which established a manufacturing plant at Buttermilk Lane, Bolsover, Derbyshire in 1936. At the time it was the largest one of its type in the world. Plants were also opened later in Askern and Rossington[3] near Doncaster and at Grimethorpe in South Yorkshire. The coal oil and liquor from these plants was processed at the central refinery at the Bolsover plant. The ovens continued producing Coalite until the Bolsover works closed down in 2004.
