View of the tall chimney at the cloth manufacturing Cape Mills at Farsley Beck Bottom. The chimney is surrounded by scaffolding in preparation for its demolition. The chimney dates from 1902 and is 135 feet tall (approx. 41 metres). Originally, there was a chair lift inside in order to ascend the chimney, but in later years it was climbed by way of an external ladder. The official opening of the chimney was preceded by free trips to the top for seven days while Farsley Band played at the bottom. A few of the band ascended the chimney with their instruments and played from the open top. Cape Mills had produced military cloth for nearly two centuries before its closure. It was to be converted to Cape Mills Industrial Estate.
