HEW 31 Aug: Chimney christening, 61 yards high, contractors J&J Whitehead. 25 ladies and gentlemen landed safely at top. Jos Crowther christens it St Thomas after numerous suggestions. Marsden sets example of christening long chimneys after apostles.
Was this common just in Yorkshire or did it travel over the hill to lancashire area ?

Very interesting Bodge. I don't think I have ever come across it before,,,,,, I know of none christened after saints in Lancashire.
