Dating back to 1874 these works have produced sodium carbonate common in cleaning products, dyes, fertilizers and other such products.

The works have been operated under Brunner Mond, Imperial Chemical Industries, and TATA Chemical Europe. The works were also responsible for "accidentally" creating polythene in 1933 during an experiment.

TATA Europe closed these works in 2014 along with the attached power station responsible for power supply.

This has to be one of the best abandoned control rooms around in the UK at the moment. Cracking first report there, welcome to OS! :)
