About this image
The works taken at 9.00pm at night. The Devonshire works (electricity plant) were owned by the Staveley Coal and Iron Company, and produced enough power to its collieries, works, housing, local companies and local authorities. The power was generated as a result of utilising waste steam, burning waste gases from blast furnaces and the raising of steam from burning low grade fuels.
