Padeswood Cement Works

July 28, 2013   

What looks like a rocket being launched in the distance from the A55 near Boughton is, in fact, the cement works at Padeswood, near Buckley. It has been present since 2005 and is 200ft high.

The kiln was under investigation in 2011 for alleged impact on health issues. It was found to have not caused any.
