chimney Wrexham Chimney Sells for £1420 on Ebay

Former Wrexham AM and MP Dr John Marek has placed the iconic Victorian brewery chimney based on Tuttle Street up for sale on eBay.

The auction ended at 8.27pm tonight closing at a price of £1420 ! The auction attracted 26 bidders, with a total of 59 bids placed, with the winning bid placed in the final few minutes.

Dr Marek bought the grade II-listed landmark 20 years ago to prevent it from being demolished but recently decided to pass it on.

The chimney was first built in 1894 when it was part of the Soames brewery before it later became part of Wrexham’s Border Brewery.

It closed in 1984 following a takeover by the Marstons group which led to Dr Marek buying the chimney to secure its future.
