POPPLETON SUGAR BEET FACTORY, BOROUGHBRIDGE ROAD, YORK. A worker loading a riveting gun during the construction of two sugar silos at Poppleton Sugar Beet Factory.
Two sugar silos were built by Laing for the British Sugar Corporation Limited at the Poppleton Sugar Beet Factory. They were designed to hold a total of 16, 000 tons of sugar and were the largest to have been built in the country when this photograph was taken. The prestressed post-tensioned concrete silos were made with sliding formwork using hydraulic climbing jacks
