Salvage v Demolition

Judging by those photo's, they don't appear to be taking much care in dismantling the vaulted arches...I though that type of stonework would have been worth quite a few bob.

From Accy to ashes, dust to dust.

Photos of Sacred Heart, having the "heart" ripped out of it.

Thanks for these photos Mick. I went past on the train today on my way to Blackpool, and noticed the huge hole in the back of the church. What a dam..d shame!

It's a shame that they had to knock it down, it was a lovely church.

They did'nt have to knock it down.........they could have deconsecrated the building and sold it off for another use. Instead, one more example of our great Victorian building heritage has gone to rubble.

We look at those nutters in the 1960's who destroyed most of our great town architecture throughout the land and replaced it with rubbish.......Accy escaped relatively unscathed. It now looks like we're trying to catch up.

Artwork....

...I can imagine the artist is upset. This is the equivalent of burning books.....it is a kick in the face...no attempt appears to have been made to preserve any of the finer items...no salvage, no nothing.

I wonder what whatever goes up on the site will look like.
