Has anybody else heard the same as me, that Thursday's chimney demolition has been postponed because of recent bad weather? Only been  mentioned on Kent Online so far, I can't believe other sources haven't confirmed.

I'd hate to miss it !

I believe the chimney has had a stay of execution and will NOT now be demolished on March 8th. I am assuming this week’s extreme weather has put the necessary preparations back.

A new date has yet to be revealed.

I am sure times will be confirmed and re-comfirmed countless times before the 8th. They have to get approval from Police and councils etc. for road closures, safety zones and associated legislation.

          Has anyone got any inside info for a heads up of when the Chimney at Kingsnorth is to be blown. Earlier this year they said September.
          Hope they give a bit more notice than when they demolished the boiler house.Released time to the press a couple of hours before they blew it.
