Medway skyline changed forever as Kingsnorth Power Station stack is imploded.

Power station demolition experts Brown and Mason now seem to be carrying out controlled blasts with almost monotonous regularity. And the company has this morning chalked up yet another with the successful and spectacular implosion of the giant stack at the Kingsnorth Power Station.

Standing twice the height of the Big Ben tower, the 200 metre chimney at Uniper’s decommissioned Kingsnorth Power Station in Hoo, Kent, came down at 10 am after the demolition was delayed from earlier in the month due to snow.

The chimney removed steam and other gases from the plant’s boilers and had become a familiar landmark on the Kent landscape.
