We had often seen the chimney on top of the moor from the Nent
Valley but never really had bothered to take a closer look, until now. The
exhaust fumes from the smelting mill where channelled through a condenser to
try to recover additional lead, and then the secondary exhaust fumes where
channelled again up a flue built on the surface of the moor leading to the
chimney which has now collapsed. Workers from the mining complex would also
clean the flue in order to recover more lead.
