 Can anyone throw any light on this structure built within the grounds of Sheffield High School for Girls, Rutland Park please?

It's puzzled me for many a year, and Google searches have got me no nearer!

Welcome to Sheffield History, BGlass.

Could this be it?

"Ornamental chimney, now disused. Part of the heating system for a range of greenhouses, now demolished. c1875. Coursed squared stone and ashlar. Round shaft with moulded plinth and cornice, and square and octagonal dice. Faceted square base and stepped plinth. Plain square stone lower stage with ashlar band. Approx 6m high.

If only I had remembered that discussion it would have saved me having to find that Historic England information again.

Then again, 9 years is a very long time on Sheffield History :)

You are welcome BGlass, no forum search engine will ever be perfect.
