Chimneys


We've had beautiful weather for the last few days - much better than most of July and August.

The photo is a view up the River Bann, upstream of Coleraine. The chimneys in the background belong to a factory called Spanboard.
Opened in 1959, Spanboard manufactured chipboard until last year when the plant was mothballed as a result of the recession.

I hope 'mothballed' isn't a euphemism for 'closed down for good'.

Pretty area. I'm glad you're back. I miss you.

Rather sobering. The chimney landmarks are gone, an era is gone, but there is still a beautiful scene with a strong river going through it.
