DerelictThursday – Demolition Leicester

Demolition Leicester

On Sunday we had the big bang. I had planned to go and photograph it, but in the event I couldn’t face it so I went in the opposite direction. I still heard it though, five miles away. And now we have piles of rubble. And dust. Much dust. But this is the old indoor market. Going, going… It feels like the whole city is being demolished. I wouldn’t mind, except that there has been little thought as to what will occupy the space and it’s clear that there will be loss of public amenity. Someone’s making a profit.
