    Not sure what happened to the first video I put up, but here it is again.

    In February 2009, Lafarge announced manufacturing at the plant, which opened in 1962, would be suspended as a result of increasingly difficult cost and market conditions.

    For over half a century the chimney has towered above Wiltshire, being easly identified from miles away, until this morning, when a controlled demolition removed this iconic landmark leaving almost no trace of its existence.
    I couldn't see the flag a member of this site attached to the top of the chimney, guessing they took it down beforehand.



    Thanks for looking.

    Wouldn't surprise me. We were in the first field on the left after the houses on Newtown road.
