Kilve Beach Shale Oil Retort

Kilve Beach Shale Oil Retort - Landscapes

Kilve near Minehead in Somerset, is a place where shale abounds in the coastal cliffs. In 1916 it was discovered that the rock contained oil and in 1924 the Shaline company was set up to begin oil production here. This small brick building housed a retort. It was probably the first to be built here in a rush of optimism in the 1920s.
