Description:
Lonely chimneys are located all over the world. This category is to log those chimneys and your knowledge of or guess as to what the history of this location is.
Expanded Description:
We are looking for real history or your fantasy Or best guess about the location where these chimneys exist. You will see some of them from the roadway but the most interesting ones are located in areas not usually seen by the general public (in the woods, on a trail in a park, etc.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Your waymark should be of a chimney that is free standing or only with minimal remains of a building that it served.

This category is NOT for smoke stacks of factories unless the building that is served is no longer standing.
Instructions for Posting a Lonely Chimneys Waymark:
A good photo of the chimney is required.

Many of these locations are on private property so, as in all waymarking and geocaching adventures, please respect the property rights of others. If there is a doubt as to whether you can access the site of the chimney legally please just take your photo from a public place and zoom it. Also be aware that some of these locations may not be as stable as they look so please for safety sake do not touch the chimney.

History of the location would be very interesting to others so please record it here if you know it.

Please give us a little creative fantasy or your best guess about the location if you do not know the exact history of the location. We are looking for a fun category here. Please do not get too carried away but try to be a little realistic about your fantasy. (for instance do not build a fantasy about a chimney in the woods of Mississippi that once belonged to the Queen of England)

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
A photo of the chimney is required to post your visit. Any information that you may have as to the history of the location would be appreciated. You may also add your best guess as to the building that it was attached to or any other information about the location that you may have.

This is a fun category so please have fun with it.
