Isle Of Grain Chimney To Be Demolished
A massive chimney which has been part of the north Kent skyline for the past 37 years is to become the tallest concrete ever to be demolished today (Wednesday)
The tower at the former Isle of Grain power station stands at 250metres and is taller than 55 double decker buses stacked on top of each other.
It is one of the last buildings and structures still standing on the site of the old oil-fired power station which was closed in 2012. The rest have been demolished over the past few months and years, and an estimated 80,000 tonnes of concrete has been removed as a result to be recycled.
At 244metres the chimney is the second tallest in the UK, and is taller than 55 double decker buses stacked on top of each other.
It is set to be brought down at 11am, sending 40,000 tonnes of concrete crashing to the ground.
