Workers are captured emptying a coke oven at the end of their final shift as a Barnsley coking plant closes.

Monckton coking plant in Royston was open for 130 years before it was closed by Hargreaves Services.

The workers are photographed emptying coke oven number 17 for the final time at the end of their shift – the last ever push of coke from the plant.

A few minutes later they left for the final time and headed home.
