Southam Cement Works.
The Southam cement works are owned by industry giant ‘Rugby Cements Works’ further north from here.
The plants both extract Blue Jurassic Lias limestone which is clay particular to the region of Warwickshire in Britain.
The Southam division which is a large sprawling ode to the material it produced was conveniently located nearby a canal and its own railway tracks to enable the ease of exporting cement.
Closure took place in the late 1990’s to relocate this division back up to Rugby along with a couple of its other works (including Chinnor) which have also been shut down in favour of relocating back to Rugby.
