Lightbulb New photo category - Demolition!

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

There's now a new photo category - Demolition! - which contains photos of buildings and landmarks in and around Rossendale that have been demolished or in the process of.

Once demolished, these buildings and landmarks are gone forever and it's great to be able to document them.

There's a main demolition category, as well as special sub-cats for the demolition of Accrington & Rossendale College and the bus depot in Rawtenstall.

Cheers to Alan for the suggestion.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

Awww, what a shame that an entire category is needed to highlight that Rossendale is being demolished.

Is it going to get its equal of "new constructions" ?

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

I suppose in the interests of fairness, we should have a 'New Developments' category too.

Now added.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

Been to look at the College this morning and all the demolition team have gone and a Manchester Security firm are now on site. Looks like it's all gone wrong. Will put a couple of photos in the Gallery later.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

I notice today that the place looks more like a WWII bombed out building.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

Was talking to Galeforce about this last week. God only knows what people arriving in the Valley think. Anybody stepping off the bus at the Valley centre must think they have got off at some inner city ghetto by mistake.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

I wish they would just flatten it and make it into a temporary car park, The old bus dept or Brick Mountain doesn't look very nice too.

Re: New photo category - Demolition!

Isn't it depressing, seeing all these buildings going?
It was bad enough for me when the top floor of the college went. I'd spent many happy hours up there doing my secretarial course.
But now the Refectory has gone too! Boo hoo!
