Very Good!       That would be a fun sort of demolition to watch.   Sort of reminiscent of the Monty Python big giant foot stomping things.

great pic BUT thats floor 18 getting taken away, there are 29 housing floors, 1 drying floor (now closed off) and a winch floor (also closed off and the winch engines are placed on the stairs leading to the drying area) for fire fighting purposes they are classed as 31 storeys high and are about 6' higher than the red rd flats.

As a side point you can see my floor in the picture

If you look at the top of the buildings you will see vertical slats thats where the drying and winch rooms were.
Now they are closed off as the neds used them as launch pads for throwing bricks etc down to the pavement and cars below as so called fun, now the winch engines lie on the stairs leading to the drying area blocking access but doesn't stop the odd bucky bottle, washing machine etc being thrown from the verandahs as I said all in the name of "fun"
