    Default Barrington Cement Works, October 2018


    The Railway Cement Works


    Intro
    After hearing of the demolition starting and scaffolding allowing access to the chimney vents I have wanted to go here. My main aim was to explore the vents and climb the building giving me a view of everything.

    The Explore
    After a rather stressful commute to the works we made our way through the woodland. We could instantly hear a digger going at a building, we had to stay hidden. Eventually we saw what had happened to the Kiln.

    Crap.
    Anyway we moved around the back of the chimney and found a way on the walkways. Due to how open it was I went alone, at first. Eventually I started to find what I wanted to see.

    It's unfortunate to come to an end. Probably the best location I have visited.
    The Chimney will be blown up in December.

    Here's a little throwback to what it was like.

    Thanks. I'd get here quick, by the look of things the control room seems intact still.

    Indeed. I talked to one of the demolition workers at the main gate. He said it's coming down in December but they can't confirm when.

    Thanks. It was quite an exhausting climb, especially in this heat.
