News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

.But a cautionary tale I do not think they will be able to build on that site because of the heavy metals in the soil left over from the coking process.

They were able to on the site of Rochester gasworks, they used some new techniques but I think it was still a 2 year process to clean up the land

Good morning everyone,I can remember being taken into Margate on the number eight bus which stopped at the harbour.On occassions you could see coal being unloaded from barges moored at the harbour arm for the gas works at Margate.But a cautionary tale I do not think they will be able to build on that site because of the heavy metals in the soil left over from the coking process.
