6/160 Chimney at N.G.R.
- SJ 3744 0197


Chimney. Mid-C19. Reddish brown engineering brick skin to rubble core
with roughly coursed limestone plinth and stone capping. Octagonal
shaft tapering to top on square plinth; round-headed arches to plinth
on north and south. Forms a prominent landmark on the south side of
the Snailbeach Valley. The remains of the flue, associated with the
chimney, but which has mostly been removed, survive on the hill below
the chimney and can be identified by several largely-collapsed round-
headed brick arches (not included), which served as access points to
its tunnel.
