Dixon's Chimney

This former cotton mill is grade 11 listed, the chimney stands at 290 feet and is a local landmark in Carlisle, if I can see Dixon's Chimney when I am driving I can't get lost (she says!)
Better than sat-nav!

Great landmark. We have a Courtaulds chimney which used to be really tall. They wanted to remove it completely but it is in a densely populated area and there wasn't a safe way to demolish it. They asked Fred Dibnah but he said the only way to do it was to dismantle it brick by brick, which would have been extremely expensive. Eventually they decided to reduce the size and use it as a "mast" for mobile phone aerials
