This time, with smaller pictures. Sorry about that.

Was there a few years ago on legitimate business and on the day was offered a chance to see the top of the stack. I only had my cameraphone on me but had always wanted to see what it looked like up there and hopefully you may be interested too.

The stack:

The lift up to about 600ft inside (stack is a shroud around 4 pots @ 199 metres (653 ft) ):

There are some slits on the way up with external views:

Ladder to the platform on top, which runs between the 4 pot exits:

Top of pots which are about 30ft above the platform:

I shot a short vid of walking around between the pots:

Not many of the folk on site there get to see the top of the stack so I was happy. No bravery involved of course, just thought I'd share.
