Three photographs of the chimney prior to its removal later in 1962. These clearly show the year of its erection as 1895 which means that I was wrong in quoting 1869 on the previous page. I took that date from a newspaper article of January 1962. Originally it was 220 feet in height, but after being struck by lightning in 1952, 30 feet were removed. The chimney remained disused from then on as refuse tipping was transferred to Sheepcote Valley.
