    It'll still get pulled down. What a shame. I hope they'll soon regret it.

    i've just had a few drives past it today. It's not been totally demolished yet, the clock tower and the art deco curved frontage is still there, at the moment. They're demolishing the building from the back (facing the headstocks and the open land) towards the front.

    The lockers were all piled up on top of one another near the fence on the left hand side. There were two huge lorries (scrap lorries) on site a couple of hours ago. Plus two cars, one digger, and a black 4x4. Could only see two men with high vis talking to the man in the digger.

    It's a shame it's going/gone, it really is. Would've loved to have gone back to visit the bathhouse as I never went in :(

    That was what I was saying yesterday to James, it would've made a lot more sense.

    I've just been, the bath house is still there in parts, but is beyond repair, I.E - No roof or front...
    The headstocks look lined up for demolition, they are no floodlit at night and surrounded by diggers and security, so are probably no longer doable. It's a real bad shame, it doesn't even seem as if they are using parts of any of it for their precious heritage centre.

    Here's a few quick snapshots of the bathhouse, taken about an hour ago:

    Looks like a hasty demolition...


    This one shows the lockers in front of the skip

    Cheers James. Have the lockers that were nearer to the fence gone, or are they with those near the skip?

    They're using the compound they used before, at that gate not far from the headstocks. grrrrrrrrrrrr!!! Was quite a few cars in the compound earlier on, have they all gone from there now?

    Well, it's a new compound, but the 'stocks are now lit up. The lockers are still there, albeit very smashed. The compound also houses a very irate and eastern-european looking guard...
    The cars are gone now.

    Been up again this morning to have a look at the state of play. The back part of the tower with the clock on is now gone, and more of the bathhouse has been demolished.

    This is looking from the lane at the side of the site.


    The diggers


    The back of the tower where one part of the clock used to be. :(


    You can see here, more of the back now gone.


    Tiny bit of wall left against the road.


    Some of those wonderful lockers, now all dinted and dumped.


    And lastly, more lockers


    Hope someone else can get up there and get some more updates.

    :) Sal

    What a shame. It was inevitable really.

    It's all over.
