aerial photograph of former tailings ponds in Northwhich Cheshire England UK. Slowly being taken over by nature these former tailings ponds are asociated with the now closed Wallerscote Chemical Works. There is little information available as to what was going on here but the former ICI chemical works was producing soda ash so these are probably soda ash tailings ponds. Aerial photography from 1945 shows them full with liquid tailings, however they have not held liquids for many decades sice then.
