Fawley Power Station Chimney Demolished

The chimney at the site of a power station in the area of Fawley, England, came tumbling down on Sunday, October 31, as a demolition team imploded it.

This slow motion footage was posted by New Forest District Council, who said that “the half a century old tower, which was 198m (650 feet) high, was gone in seconds.”

The controlled demolition was carried out to facilitate the creation of a new development bringing 1,500 new homes and 2,000 jobs to the area. Credit: New Forest District Council via Storyful
