BILLINGHAM HAVERTON HILL ROAD
NZ 42 SE
5154-/7/10001 Phosphate rock silo No 15
at ICI works, Billingham
II*
Phosphate rock silo. 1928/29. Reinforced concrete with steel gantry.
200 feet long, 80 feet wide and 47 foot 6 inches high, parabolic in
cross section with re-inforced concrete arches. The silo is
surmounted by a steel framed cage which contains a conveyor belt, this
belt is linked to a further belt in its south tower which is linked
to the steel gantry which runs down to the wharf. The ends of the
silo have re-inforced concrete ribs and the floor contains a series
of circular openings used for feeding the rock phosphate to the
underground conveyor used for emptying this silo. This silo was
designed by Monnoyer British Construction Ltd, for the storage of
phosphate rock imported for the production of fertilizer. The
parabolic shape allowed vast quantities to be stored without it
causing structural problems on the sides of the buildings. This is
the earliest surviving example of this type of silo in England.
