Wainhouse Tower

This is Wainhouse Tower at Halifax.  It is 253 feet high and was originally commissioned as a chimney for the local dye works by John Edward Wainhouse in the late 19th century. The structure was never actually used as a working chimney and is regarded by many as one of Britain's finest follies.  A mild and pleasant afternoon without rain or snow before the early evening thunderstorm.
