Halifax & Wainhouse Tower

Whilst wandering around Norland today, looking at the scarecrows, I rather liked this view of Halifax.
The 253 ft Wainhouse Tower 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 as such, is regarded by many as one of Britain's finest follies.
