The end of Poundswick!


The end didn't come quickly.  The bulldozers first appeared in February 2009 and the last vestiges of the original Poundswick buildings didn't disappear until December 2010.  I have therefore chronicled Poundswick's destruction on four separate pages, one page for each significant phase of the demolition.  Links to these pages are given below.  I warn you that they contain some very sad photographs so I'd recommend kitting yourself out with a box of paper hankies and a stiff whisky before you embark . . . . .
