If you would like a larger, higher quality copy of any of these pictures email


A series of pictures taken by Carol Richardson from 16 Kingsley Avenue and provides a view of the demolition from a different angle


Here we can see that the explosions have already accounted for the flats in the centre (Jonson, Milton and Browning).


And now Keats is beginning to collapse


We can see Cowper House still standing on the right but Keats Court is now just a pile of rubble



The following are a series of photographs taken by Paul Collins. They show John Bacon Court, and Chaucer Court from just before the demolition until the end.


The flats are cordoned off ready for the explosion


Yiu can see that the flats have been hollowed out and had all the glass removed


A stunning picture of the collapse of John Bacon Court


And down it goes


Now just smoke and dust


The smoke and dust pushes further out




The following pictures were submitted by Wendy Whittaker of Browning House.
