Calshot Chimney demolition date set for October 31st

The iconic landmark at Calshot is due to be demolished in a single controlled event on Sunday October 31st.

“For more than 50 years it has dominated the local skyline – but at the end of the month the iconic Fawley power station chimney will be blown up. Demolition company Brown and Mason have been working for several years on a plan to bring down the giant 650ft construction in one go, and it will finally be demolished on Sunday 31st October.

Residents living near the site have been warned of loud noises but those hoping to watch will be forced to do so at a considerable distance.”
