    Thanks for the report and pix elli and thanks for the update UESW.

    That place looks "God forsaken" right now. I thought you captured that really well.

    Morning K,

    There's not alot left of the estate now:


    As you can tell, the main blocks left are the ones with the main fire damage so apart from the blocks with the single bedroom flats in, there's not much there, it's all going very fast!

    I feel very lucky to have seen it prior to all this taking place! I'm sure you're quite gutted

    Very gutted! It has been kind of cool at the same time though as I have been able to get onto site (without permission) and see it all first hand.

    A local resident, who was actually born ON the estate has stopped me many times on my way out to see what I shoot that day, I can see a tear in her eye everytime. She says herself that it would have been a shame to watch it go and not have any record of it being there, the reason that we all do what we do!

    Ahh that's really quite sweet, must be hard for someone like her to see it being destroyed. Does make me appreciate what we do even more though x
