This is Houghton Hall, behind the trees. The owner at this time was probably Colonel Part.

Nice construction picture puts the light-up date at mid-1926 earliest.

The Dunstable cement plant began operation in 1926 under the ownership of the Dunstable Portland Cement Company. It was acquired by the Red Triangle Group shortly after this picture was taken, in late 1927. After the collapse of Red Triangle in 1931, it was acquired by APCM. A third kiln was installed in 1937 and a fourth in 1966. It shut down in 1971.



Here the plant is under construction. Two kilns, two clinker coolers and two cement mills can be clearly seen. The slurry pipeline from the quarry has been laid in a trench under the road, and its course is visible.
