First of all apologies to Big Jobs, but this really was a spare of the moment thing, it's been at the top of the to do list to abseil down the outside ever since we first climbed the chimney & abseiled down the inside.
On arrival we found some young chavs doin a bit of vandalising so we told them we were the new owners & would let them of if they disappeared quick style.
First job I climbed to the top up the internal ladder & dropped a line down to Morrisey who tied the climbing rope to which I then hauled up & dropped over the edge after Moz had rigged it to the bottom of the ladder.
time for some pics & wait for Mozzer to join me. After chilling for 1/2 hour it was time to go over the edge Morrisey went first shortly followed by me.
What a buzz we shook hands hauled the rope back down wrapped up & fooked off Job done
We reckon the chimneys 160/170 foot which i will confirm later as we knotted the throw line which I'll measure later

Apart from the walkie talkie dropping 164ft and breaking into it's componant parts all went swimmingly well. Going over that top rail all that kept going through my head were Fred's imortal words " If owt goes wrong it's half a day out wi't undertakers!"
