Piece by piece
I guess the process of demolition now incorporates a lot of recycling, which would explain why the houses are dismantled rather than simply bulldozed. All of the windows - including the whole front wall of the sitting room - are removed (well, pushed out to the ground) and you can see how the opening needs to be supported by scaffolding to stop the whole thing collapsing once these are taken out. All of the insides seem to the stripped out as well - pipes, cabling etc, presumably to be recycled. Only then do the JCBs pull the building down. That was Pennywell today before the rain started.
Looks like it's going to be raining on and off all afternoon so I think I'll go and do something useful indoors. Bottle the last of the last of my cider, scan some negatives, develop some film. That kind of thing. To a soundtrack of Gil Scott-Heron.
