Blast from the Past – 1984

Wileman 25M6 Uniflow Scrubber Barrel arriving on site at ARC Eartham near Chichester back in the summer of 1984. The machine was installed to clean up very dirty quartz gravel at a rate of 250 Tonnes per hour. This machine went onto ARC Lydd in Kent after the closure of Eartham to carry on the good work. Tarmac’s relocated latest plant at Killerby will have a similar machine. Apologies for the poor PPE by the young man in the picture. I wouldn’t get away with that today!
