The loading gear at the berth is still standing (Feb 2011). Is it being used for loading some other cargo now?
high pit wilma :-
I'm not sure if they still send opencast coal to the power stations down south,they used to send coal from Ellington pit blended with other coal,to get the right sulphur/ash content,but
now that Ellington's gone,i must admit,i haven't taken a great deal of notice,even though i'm down there,[on the cambois side],quite often!
Good point,i'll try to find out and post any info up soon as i can.
Cheers aj.,thanks for the visit!
Hi Bill and aj, the shipping plant is still in use to this day (28/02/2011) but does not ship any coal now, only grain and glass to the best of me and my dads knowledge, i dont know where to though most likely the south but im not 100% sure.
Hi Bill and Aj, i found the shipping plant is still in use but it ships glass and plastics not grain as i said before and it is shipped to Europe.
