The last days of the Ferrier Estate

with 7 comments

Thanks to Nick at South East Central for the heads-up.

A few weeks ago I came across demolition work at the Ferrier on a Sunday afternoon – huge great chunks of concrete coming down with sickening thumps. They’re not hanging around in knocking it down.

  4. Friday isn’t too useful. Hopefully the plans will be put online or a kindly soul who visits can take some pics.

    Aside from the politics (the in the meantime podcast on the ferrier was very interesting) I think the new buildings look great.

  5. Great idea to capture this for posterity. The old place looks a lot better in the sunshine and from a speeding car!
