Unless you are a chimney sweeper or a friend of Mary Poppins, you might not know exactly what it looks like in the depths of a chimney, but drone footage in Ireland offers a glance.

The Telegraph reports that someone operated an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) over and inside the highest structures in the City of Dublin – the 680-foot-high Poolbeg Chimneys – as well as over the city’s industrial area by the water.

The video shows what one might imagine would comprise the inside of a vast tubular structure: endless nothingness. However, the nothingness reaches a frightening level as the vehicle hovers lower and lower through the top portion of the chimney to reveal its hollow, dark center with no end.
