Steeplejacking is a highly specialised niche technique, often practised and perfected over many years. It is used to maintain and protect structures such as church steeples and industrial chimney stacks, carrying out repairs to masonry, carpentry or paintwork, as well as cleaning and sandblasting.
The industry’s most famous exponent was Fred Dibnah who, having mastered his trade repairing chimneys, became aware of the demand for a cost-effective method of demolishing them. He presented a number of television series in the 1980s and 1990s on his steeplejack work as well as the industrial revolution and its mechanical and architectural legacy.
