Brymbo Iron Quarry (United Kingdom)

By 1899 Brymbo Steelworks was rapidly depleting its local stocks of ironstone, leading it to prospect in Oxfordshire. It purchased ironstone fields at Hook Norton which it reckoned would yield over a million tons, giving it a life of thirteen years. Since Brymbo was 132 miles away from Hook Norton it was decided to calcine the ore on site, in gas fired kilns, to reduce the cost of transport.
