13/11/72 Dixon's Chimney at Shaddon Mill
(Formerly Listed as:
Chimney shaft at Shaddon Mill)
Chimney for adjoining Shaddon Mill. 1836 for Peter Dixon by
Richard Tattersall. English bond brickwork with flush red
sandstone quoins. Octagonal tapering shaft without plinth or
cap; iron tie-bands at the top and bottom. Over 100 metres
high and when built was the largest chimney in the country.
Carlisle Journal (1836) records the laying of the last stone
on the chimney. Damaged by lightning in 1931 and it was
necessary to take off the top 10 metres in 1950 for safety
reasons. Now about 270 feet tall. In a prominent position at
road junction and a recognisable landmark visible for many
(Carlisle Journal: 29 October 1836).
