Default Anston ground history?

Just a quick question about the Anston range (there last weekend for the GP). Just curious really as to the history behind the site. The railway lines and embankments (brutal wind deflectors!) and the ash/brick shards? in amongst the mud made me wonder what sort of industry there was there way back.

Trees making a comeback but many were pretty established, also the large pond.

Must be lots of other things around there :-) Love to hear about other grounds where clubs now fling the lead where once upon a time there was something else there. Great to see woodland reclaiming the site.
