A Yorkshire Weekend - Saltaire 3/7

I showed an overall view of Salts Mill at Saltaire yesterday and today I thought I would show this close up of the chimney at one end of the building.

As you can see it is very tall and I think a very wide angle lens would be needed to get it all in, this was at 25mm on the G10.

Quality brick-laying here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Ray but can you imagine what the scaffolding would have been like in the early 1850's when this was built.
This is a very tall chimney,grate shot.
Brian Walbey: It's so tall Cheryl that I couldn't get it all in one shot from my position.

would have hated to be the brickies laborer on this job smile
Brian Walbey: A long way to carry the hods up to the top Tony, mind you 1850's scaffolding probably was a bit dodgy to say the least.

Brian Walbey: So tall Tracy that i couldn't get it all in one shot from my position.
They liked their bricks the old Victorians!
Brian Walbey: They certainly did Bill, I bet there's a fair number in this chimney.

Do you know what are the little indentations for? Amazingly tall chimney - well captured.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: So tall Ingrid I couldn't get it all in one shot. I suspect the indentations were for the builders to duck in to when high flying pigeons zoomed past smile

So different from Victorian chimneys Brian
Brian Walbey: But it is a Victorian chimney Chris, built around 1850.
That took some building, Very nicly captured Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, can you imagine what 1850's scaffolding was like then though.
Superbly captured Brian. I love the brickswork!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Nice Brian. These tall chimney have an elegance about them, don't they? I like them.
Brian Walbey: This one is very tall Sheila, and elegant as you say.
What stonework Brian ....

Can't say I've seen a square chimney before, Brian. Very unusual.

Tall and thin indeed Brian, if the slots were opened up it could be used bu archers to repel boarders as well.
Brian Walbey: A good idea Les, mind you I doubt they get many borders rond there these days smile
cool shot. Hard to make these look interesting.
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: I was lucky that I got a good sky behind it Rob that brought out the colours.
