Hope Cement Works

Hope Cement Works at Dawn | Misty Peak District Photography
The Hope Cement Works is a prominent feature in the Hope Valley above the village of Castleton and has been established there for over 80 years. The plant sits beneath Mam Tor and dominates this lovely part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Here industry really is at odds with the natural beauty of the rolling, wooded countryside.
Having said that, as a photographer I think the factory provides a great focal point and a strong feature to place in context with the surroundings. On a misty morning, especially before dawn when the lights are also on, the combination is very photogenic.
