We call that "flavour" :D
Driving south on the A19 looking over Teesside it all looks like one. But each to his own. Plus a lot of the cooling towers have come down. Massive change from the 70/80’s.
I can easily separate Wilton from Billingham, and Seal Sands, I've worked at all 3 sites. Although some of the cooling, distillation and fractionation towers are disused, a lot of it is still there. Seal Sands is currently the most active of those 3 areas.
Yes I agree with seal sands but that comes under Hartlepool not billingham, the majority of what you see is what use to be ici Wilton which is the other side of Boro on way to Redcar. It stretchers for miles. It just looks like it continues from seal sands but is the other side of the river. Billingham has very little now of actual sites work. It’s more offices and labs.. I use to work on the Johnson Mathey sites and the wife still works on the Johnston Mathey and Fuji sites which she has done for 14 years.. its and easy easy mistake to make. From the view your talking it looks all one..
Definitely no confusion, when I drive down the A19 for work, from mot far past Peterlee turnoff, there's the top of a huge hill where you can see for miles. You can see Billingham and Seal Sands. Still a pretty big density of chemical companies, albeit not owned by ICI. I used to work on that sire straight out of uni, Agree Middlesbrough is grim until you get to the likes of Nunthorpe.
