Well the Landy's here, so Fred must be about somewhere. And that must be the "Chimney" that will soon be no more.
You can see already Fred has been hard at work.

Over the past three days this rather "Posh Marque" has been erected, with soft carpets and posh toilets it looks like there's going to be a party (while we wallow in the mud !!.

A sizeable chunk has been removed form the base of the chimney, Fred is checking to see how much it has moved, and what way

Always checking the progress and movement of the chimney, Checking goes way into the twighlight hours. due to very strong wings

Taking out more of this, 1 Meter thick chimney, to be sure to drop it in just the right place
Time to start piling on the wood, In fact there was so much of it, this process alone took three hours

A Final check and it's back to the site hut for a warm Cuppa Tea and a chat about the days events. One thing you can be assured of in Lancashire, Is a very warm welcome. from the friendliest of people.

Soaking the telegraph poles (sticks as Fred calls them) with diesel oil, A fire is already alight inside the chimney, this causes a strong updraft to get the real fire going on the outside,

Its time to light the fire, This chimney, that has stood for a 100 years is about to fall to its feet, There is a certain sadness creeping in

Pinned into the opposite side of the chimney, this lever system give a very good guide to when the chimney is going to fall. The last picture we can give you of this grand old Lady and all who must have worked hard to build her.
