HRS 2880 Radcliffe, Bealey's works 1974

This was the entrance to the works. Next to the clock tower on the right is a round tower, it once housed a weather vane which indicated which way the wind was blowing. The lead-chamber sulphuric acid process produced toxic fumes and served as an indicator as to when it was safe to burn the sulphur and allow the wind to carry away from the local community.
