1883 'Terrific Gale - At Longsight the most serious effect of the gale was the almost entire demolition of the large chimney at the works of Messrs. William Weild and Co., engineers, Nutsford Vale. The chimney was one of the finest structures in the neighbourhood, but only about 30 yards now remains. Fortunately no one was about the place the time of the disaster.'[3]
