The Tate and Lyle Sugar Silo
On the dock road in Liverpool stands the Tate and Lyle Sugar Silo, built by the Tate and Lyle Engineering Department in 1955 and designed to house 100,000 tons of raw cane sugar, delivered by ship to Huskisson Dock and then transported by conveyor belt across the dock road and into the silo vis the tower on the right by an overhead railway.
It is a reinforced concrete parabolic tunnel, 528 ft long by 87 ft high and is believed to be the largest such structure in Europe. Now a Grade 2 Listed Building.
It is now disused but many of the fittings and fixtures still exist within.
