aerial photograph of the Coryton Refinery Essex UK. This photograph was taken in 2012 when the refinery was still active. Since then production came to an end in 2012 and the site is now used as the Thames Enterprise Park and Deepwater fuel import terminal . At the end of the 19th century the site had been occupied by an explosive factory which closed in 1919 before becoming a refinery in the interwar years.
