This chimney stands alone near the top of a hill. The area had many lead mines, some dating from Roman times, and I believe this is all that remains of a smelter. It does lean as shown in the photo.

Now this is truly an exceptional chimney!

Outstanding! :)

I think yours beat mine by a mile! :)

Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention!

Best regards,
