Blyths Tile Works - Barton on Humber
photographs by Mike Jackson - taken August 1979.
William Blyths operated narrow gauge
railway systems at their two Barton on Humber locations.
A JCB is seen here digging the clay and loading into a single skip wagon
at their Far Ings Works.
The skip is seen here, passing under the
Humber Bridge, and being propelled by RH
260708/48 back to the works.
Once at the works the skip is winched up a steep incline and then
emptied into milling machinery.
Looking down the incline.
Locomotive and single skip outside loco
A similar railway system operated at the
Barton Works to the east of Humber Bridge.
An empty two skip train running alongside
a rough lane/track.
Water filled claypits seen beyond the
train which is negotiating some uneven trackwork.
Loading by JCB.
Returning to the works with a full train.
Seen crossing a minor road.
