Reasonable close-up, and the remains of kilns are visible.

The Thames Cement Plant (often called Gibbs Works) was started in 1872. It was acquired by APCM in 1900 and closed after the acquisition of the more efficient Wouldham plant in 1911. It may have been re-opened for a short period around 1920, but was then abandoned, and its quarry reserves were merged with those of Wouldham. It was one of the plants at which the first-generation Ransome rotary kilns were tried in the 1880s, without success.
