    In about 1955 or so there used to be a factory making "breeze blocks" next door that utilised the cinders from the power station. I remember as a nipper travelling in one of Johnny Carters lorries travelling from the sand pit in Rye Harbour Road to the power station delivering sand to be added to the mix and I had the job of unlocking the tailgate and starting the tipping mechanism to tip the load.
