10 most creative chimneys

Via a link at Dark Roasted Blend, I came across an article called '10 Most Creative Chimneys on Earth'.

Chimney at Thornbury Castle, England

There are many more pictures at the link. Go read, and ponder whether your domestic fireplace might be improved by installing something similar . . . provided it doesn't bring the walls down!
