Artist's Description

Recently restored, Wainhouse Tower is subject to much rumour, but the truth is it was built as a chimney to disperse smoke from the dye works lower down the hill. I’d been meaning to take a picture of this for some time, but I think this was worth the wait.

The 275-foot tower joined hundreds of monuments all over the world – including the London Eye and Chicago’s Sears Tower – with its blue light raising awareness of diabetes on World Diabetes Day.

This picture was shown accompanying the weather forecast on BBC Look North in December 2008.
