China Clay loading wharf


Recommended Posts

I know in the past there were numerous loading wharfs which were basically a platform where clay from nearby small dries was taken to be loaded into wagons. 
What I’m wondering is if anything like this survived into the 70s or even 80s. I’m thinking of a scenario where clay is transferred from lorry to railway but away from the actual clay works? 
I know Nanpean Wharf was used in the 80s but I don’t think that was for clay. 
It would add a bit of interest without the space for all the buildings

I went to Carbis Wharf in the 80's on a rail tour,  but whether it was still operational I couldn't say. Thetrain consisted of a couple of 118 dmu's one in the BT livery. The rail tour was around various Cornish China Clay lines.
