Sunset over 'Reckitt's Chimney'
Sunset over 'Reckitt's Chimney'
Taken from about five miles away from the main car park near Paull on the Humber riverbank. The chimney is about 140 metres high and was (is?) the one with the highest height to width ratio ever built by the continuous concrete pouring method in the early 1970s. The chimney was on the Reckitt's Colours site, but was sold to Halliday's but is no longer used now (thank goodness - it used to emit acidic sulphur dioxide which left a 'metallic' taste in your mouth!). It's one of the most notable landmarks in Hull, but it would be lovely to see this eyesore go!! The cranes in the photo are on the Hull docks - a couple of miles in front of the chimney.
