Se vende fábrica con chimenea/ Factory with chimney in sales

Posted in chimenea industrial with tags , , on 18 marzo, 2013 by bloggracia

Al paso por la N-332 dirección Valencia, a la altura de Denia, a la derecha, despunta una chimenea de fuste octogonal, sin corona, con abrazaderas en su cúspide y base oculta dentro de la nave. ¿Alguien conoce de qué fábrica se trata?¿Quienes son sus dueños? ¿Sabemos cuál es la fecha de construcción de su chimenea?
Un gran cartel anuncia su próxima venta, sería lamentable una posible posterior destrucción de la chimenea. Desde aquí apelo a su protección. Si alguien puede aportar datos que los envíe a la dirección de correo del blog. La imagen está disponible en el siguiente enlace:

Sublime – even Gothic – in their blackness, these chimneys were nevertheless strictly utilitarian in appearance: identical stacks of brick attached to equally stark mill and other factory buildings. Yet, only five years later, in 1858, The Builder pictured a new vision of industrial chimneys as a dreamscape (1). Assembled by the engineer Robert Rawlinson, these fantastical designs were chimneys that mimicked historical precedents, whether medieval Italian campaniles, Moorish minarets or the more recent clock tower of the Palace of Westminster.
