See also a general history of the Frindsbury cement plants. Initially there were four chamber kilns: two were added in 1888, another five were added in 1889, and five more in 1892, giving a total 501 t/week. The plant was shut down soon after the APCM takeover. The site was absorbed into the Crown and Quarry site and remained derelict until sold for redevelopment after WWII. It is now under light industry. There is little detailed contemporary information available regarding this plant. Please contact me with any relevant information or corrections. I am particularly interested in firmer dates and statistics, pictures and plans.

No rotary kilns were installed:
