Stanlow Chimneys

Stanlow Refinery

Strong contrast and a convoluted composition of the chimneys at Stanlow refinery near Warrington. These are sometimes known as “flair stacks” and are really giant Bunsen burners that are used to burn off accumulated vapours of some sort? It is am impressive sight to see them in operation, particularly after dark, though these burn offs are quite rare.
