Pump house chimney

The next step was to get the pieces that would form the shape of the original chimney cut and assembled. There is not a lot of information on the chimney having been taken down after WWII due to becoming unstable after the bombing of Swansea docks. There is only 1 photo graph of the chimney in place and some of the original plans.



The total height of the original chimney was 100' height with the majority of that height being made up of a octagonal shaped stack which narrows towards the top. The start of preparing the brickwork section of the chimney and the top piece making it up to its full height.
