Earthworks, Shap 28376_051

Medieval grange and post medieval lime kiln in Shap, Cumbria. This image shows the remains of a lime kiln in Cumbria which would have produced quick lime by burning limestone. Quick lime was used to make lime putty for building and to increase the fertility of agricultural land. Although the location of the lime kiln was well-known, aerial photographs provided a different perspective, revealing a pattern of earth covered ruins of buildings and walls which were there before the kiln. This was probably a medieval monastic farm called a grange, perhaps associated with nearby Shap Abbey

Shoreham Cement Works JLP01_01_028_017

Shoreham Cement Works, Upper Beeding, West Sussex, 9 August 1950. John Laing plc, silver gelatin DOP (developing out paper) print. Shoreham Cement Works, established in the 19th century, was completely rebuilt between 1948 and 1950 by John Laing who also documented the work. Workmen are shown constructing conical preliminary mixers for the new works, fixing shuttering to the nearest mixer and steelwork to the one in the background. The works closed in 1991 and the future of the site remains uncertain
