Allscott Sugar Beet Factory, Allscott, Wrockwardine, Telford and Wrekin. Looking up from the base of a recently constructed sugar silo at Allscott Sugar Beet Factory, showing a scaffolding tower erected to carry out post-tensioning of stressing cables running around the silo

A sugar beet factory was at Allscott from 1927 until it closed in 2007. Laing built two sugar silos here in 1961 for the British Sugar Corporation who were the owners of the site. Each silo was able to store 10,000 tons of granulated sugar and at the time they were constructed, they were the tallest that Laing had built so far using sliding formwork. The stressing cables were post-tensioned with a load of 50 tons to prevent the walls bursting from the weight of the stored sugar.
