Building News (15/Nov/1867) - Our Office Table: Tallest Chimney

Our Office Table.

It was stated lately by a contemporary that a chimney recently erected at Bradford was the highest in England. A correspondent writes to say that a chimney erected by him in 1857, at Messrs. Brookes' fire-clay works, Huddersfield, is 6ft. higher from the ground line than that at Bradford, and in other respects considerably larger. He believes this to be the largest and highest chimney in England. Its total height from the ground line is 102 yards.
