Skinningrove Valley

Skinningrove Valley

Skinningrove valley and ironworks about 1920. The houses surrounded by industrial pollution from the works , a column of escaping gas can be seen rising from the coke ovens as a retort is emptied. Below in the valley the gas works with a rail tanker on the siding collecting tar produced at the plant. All in contrast with the well kept and tended allotments on the valley sides; at the top left St Helen’s Church completing the scene.
