    For anyone local to Poole, you'll know the infamous chimney that belongs to Metal Box (now known as Crown)...which is due to close in the later half of 2015.

    Given that my parents both worked there for 15 years I've asked them to speak to their old buddies and and see if there's a possibility of being allowed access once the site closes.
    If anyone is interested then let me know and I'll keep you updated!

    Thanks for that. Near enough to me for an epic chimney climb.
    Is the chimney climbable? Has a ladder on it?

    Gotta say, I've been to Poole hundreds of times and I've never seen (or noticed) that chimney.
