The chimneys of Tilbury Power Station have been a familiar part of our skyline. On Thursday 28th September 2017 at 8 am the two chimneys of the Tilbury Power Station were demolished. At 170 m each they were the tallest structures in Essex. They were built in 1969 and took under 10 seconds to be demolished..
The lady’s voice you can hear on the video is a local resident whose father had worked on building the chimneys.
