NY3855 JUNCTION STREET 671-1/9/184 (North side) 13/11/72 Dixon's Chimney at Shaddon Mill (Formerly Listed as: JUNCTION STREET Chimney shaft at Shaddon Mill)

GV II*

Chimney for adjoining Shaddon Mill. 1836 for Peter Dixon by Richard Tattersall. English bond brickwork with flush red sandstone quoins. Octagonal tapering shaft without plinth or cap; iron tie-bands at the top and bottom. Over 100 metres high and when built was the largest chimney in the country. Carlisle Journal (1836) records the laying of the last stone on the chimney. Damaged by lightning in 1931 and it was necessary to take off the top 10 metres in 1950 for safety reasons. Now about 270 feet tall. In a prominent position at road junction and a recognisable landmark visible for many miles around. (Carlisle Journal: 29 October 1836).
