Steetley chimney was built in the early 1960's and could be seen for miles as it stood a massive 230 feet high.
Steeley Magnesium closed in 2005 and remained derelict for many years with part of the plant being demolished.

The chimney was demolished on July 29th 20122, we decided to have a sea view of it and watch from the boat while doing a little bit of fishing.
