Tinsley cooling towers to fall on 24th August

It’s the end of an era and the destruction I remember well from being a small child and asking my dad to drive along the “big bridge” (Tinsley Viaduct)… The Tinsley Cooling Towers which I know and love very much as a landmark in the Don Valley, and which many people around the country know as the sign that they’re passing Rotherham on the M1 are to be destroyed.

I will, of course, be watching this spectacle which is forecast to happen in the early hours of the morning of 24th August (a Sunday).
