Artist's Description

Looking down along one of the few remaining standing gantries at an abandoned magnesite filtration works.

This is one of the massive settling tanks at the site, Millions of gallons of water would be drawn in to one of these 8 settling tanks from a pier far out to sea, then through various chemical and settling processes the magnesium would be extracted from the water. This plant has been closed for nearly a decade, but as you can see the water is still tinged a deep teal colour.
