What’s it all about? – The Cement Works today
The Cement Works today is an abandoned and rotting building, standing in a deserted and empty Chalk Pit.
The site and its attendant quarry have been an eyesore for decades. It’s in West Sussex, adjacent to the River Adur, and lies between Upper Beeding and Shoreham-by-Sea. The whole site covers some 48 hectares (about 100 acres), and starts at its western end at a river bend, and then runs back over some 1,000 metres into a chalk quarry that rises up across flat plateaus to a cliff at its eastern end.
It sits right at the centre of the South Downs National Park, designated by Natural England as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
