The Wouldham Cement Plant. Founded in 1874 and expanded rapidly from 1898, it was acquired by BPCM in 1911. Kilns 1-6 were finally decommissioned when Kiln 10 was started in January 1930. The kiln is under construction here. This involved removal of slurry tanks on the north side of the plant, and the installation of a much larger slurry system in front of the kilns. Kiln 11 was installed in 1937, bringing the plant capacity to around 500,000 tonnes a year. The plant shut down in 1976.



Most of the old chamber kilns have now been cleared to free up space.
