Why wasn't Dewhirst Mill's chimney preserved? It was an iconic landmark.

Sorry John, the chimney was not preserved. I live in Canada
and was shocked when I first saw that it was gone.

Dewhurst was well known for embroidery silks I'm not aware of them weaving and the buildings to the right are spinning sheds. The date is around 1970. The Dewhurst Bridge has been dismantled.
