Construction of new furnaces at Old Works

Construction of the new Nos.1 and 2 furnaces at Old Works nearing completion, although they have yet to be fitted with their gas candles. This was part of Stanton's replacement of its old nineteenth century blast furnaces with modern, high capacity examples in the late 1920s. The view is looking east from below the wall supporting the pig beds.
