Cement Mill Three at Castle Cement before its first charge"

Castle Cement Works, Padeswood, Buckley


Number three mill was ready for its very first charge at Castle Cement. Dennis Williams and I had gone along out of curiosity to have a look at it. Whereupon, a photographer told us to pose with the shovels to make it look as if we were working hard. I think we did a pretty good job!
