Chimney demolition

3rd December 2018

As part of the work to redevelopment the site of the Cemex cement works the chimney is being demolished just before Christmas. We were very lucky that the man who is going to be organising the demotion of the chimney came into school to talk to children about how he demolishes buildings and how he will blow down the Barrington chimney.

Andy Dyson from the Erith company had a powerpoint of photographs and film clips that he shared with the children and we all learnt a lot about how to demolish a building safely.  Andy has given us permission to share some of the phots aand films on our website.


We are looking forward to watching the demolition of the chimney on December 20th .
