Chimneys?


Last time I said the Spanboard factory was 'mothballed'. Over the last couple of days the chimneys have been dismantled. To-day they're gone.

When I took the last photo, I didn't realise it would record the end of an era. Those chimneys have been a feature of the local skyline since 1959.
Originally smaller, they gained height over the years as changes in legislation forced the company to emit smoke and dust higher in the air.
