Chimney of the pyroligneous acid works.
Chimney of the pyroligneous acid works.
The tall brick chimney was part of the pyroligneous acid works built in the 1840s.
This converted wood into charcoal and collected the "wood vinegar" (mostly a watery acetic acid) for use as a mordant (colour fixer) in the dying of cloth.
