Orkney Builders Ltd. 1990

New computer operated concrete batching plant. Hid's no so bonny noo.
This batcher was operated by Ian W.H. Slater, who has forgotten more about concrete than most people ever learn. That's me and Ian's control facility on the front o' the hangar.
Note the original WW2 wartime slabs.
