What's that complex to the right of the kiln house? Beats me!

This shows Swanscombe Cement Plant prior to its rebuild in 1928-29. With 14 operating rotary kilns, it was Britain’s biggest plant until the rebuild of the Bevans plant in 1926. Chalk was originally quarried on the north side of the London road, and subsequent quarries were developed to the south until Swanscombe village was surrounded on its south side.
