Hickson & Welch, Castleford


The company was founded in 1931 and produced wood protection, furniture coatings and organic chemicals over the years. There have been several major explosions on the site in 1926, 1930 & 1992, resulting in the loss of lives. The company was bought in 2000 and operations had ceased by 2005. Powergen installed a CHP gas turbine power station at the site which still remains active.
