A new date has been confirmed for the demolition of the chimney at the defunct Kingsnorth Power Station, after it was granted a stay of execution.
The 650ft chimney was set to disappear from Medway’s skyline at 10am this Thursday, March 8.
However, due to the adverse weather conditions, particularity on the Hoo Peninsula, it was postponed.
It has now been confirmed the structure will come down at 10am on Thursday, March 22.
The last demolition at the site happened in July last year.
Two boiler buildings were demolished at the site and the event attracted crowds of people to watch them come down.
Other familiar buildings already flattened include the turbine hall, the coal handling plant and two boiler houses.
Kingsnorth was commissioned in 1973 but shut in December 2012, after it reached a 20,000-hour operations threshold set out by an EU directive.
A family business is behind the demolitions at Kingsnorth – Brown and Mason, based in Dartford.
