Hi David

Its not a 'grain store' although I can see how the silo's could have given you that thought :-)
This is the Alcan terminal at North Blyth which handles the import of ingredients for the manufacture at the nearby Alcan production Plant (Smelter) at Lynemouth. One of those ingredients is Bauxite which is mined in South America, then shipped to and processed in Ireland and then transported, usually by Arklow's ships to the Port of Blyth. The Bauxite is then transported by rail to Lynemouth and also to two of Alcan's smelters in Scotland.
