News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Looks like one of the chimneys has toppled right the way through the building,  which I don't think was that old at the time.

Strangely enough, exactly the same thing happened in the 1987 hurricane!  These buildings are very exposed to south-westerlies.
