Construction of incline to Coke Bunkers

Construction of the rail incline to serve the coke bunkers at New Works. 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 and shows the soon to be replaced blast furnaces and their associated Cowper stoves in the background.
