Save our chimneys


What can you do with old industrial chimneys?

One idea put forward at the Industrial Heritage Weekend held in Tilburg last October was to use them as land marks advertising the industrial heritage site below. In an imaginative presentation, it was argued that old chimneys could play a valuable role in promoting local sites at night as well as during the day by the judicious use of lighting. This had the added benefit of helping to promote the locality itself and thereby attracting the goodwill of the local authority, which might be induced to help financially.
