Chimney pot at Dunkirk Farm


Take the road past Newton Hall and you'll end up at Dunkirk Farm.

The highly unusual chimney pot is in sharp contrast to the modern satellite TV dish.

Chimney pot? Is that the part at the top of what I think of as a chimney? Do you know how old the building is? I'm especially wondering after looking at Ming's post. Thansk.

Oh,I've not seen such one before and wonder also how old? and is that mean something with this unusual form? or is it usual form?

The chimney pot is not beautiful but it may be a good technical device for the chimney draught.

It is odd and quaint and so obviously designed to fulfill some specific engineering purpose that I find it quite beautiful -- more so than that ugly skydish.

I love this - could do with a bit of pointing but then it would lose its 'shabby chic' charm.

These buildings and farm house are very old, and 'Shabby chic' would certainly come to mind when viewing them. I'm going down there tomorrow as I want to get some pictures of other parts of this and the farm buildings.. Theres a brick barn that's dropping to bits and its a stunner.

Huh, look at that! It does make me curious as to the reason behind the effort -- is it as Deslilas suggests?

Modern meets and contrasts with historic, I am left wondering about the chiminey pot.
