The Tinsley Towers demolition morning megathread

Recommended Posts

I like the way they seamlessly turned into a Citroen Relay ;).

After relooking to see what you meant... :hihi::hihi::hihi::hihi:

 

edit:

I think a trebuchet, loaded with taxi drivers, would make a much better job of demolishing it than catapults :hihi:

 

:hihi::hihi:

So does anybody reckon some of the explosives were stolen?

 

Or were they just playing it on the safe side.

:hihi:

Huh! You'll be laughing at the other side of your face next time I see you, lad, I do not care to be juxtaposed with jibbs at this time in the morning :hihi:

It must be a night for explosions, my dictionary just self combusted. :hihi:

 

Anyway, let's not get done for yapping :nono:

 

I'm off to bed.

 

RIP Tonsley Tiwers.

Camera 25 is the one - hope no one's planning to use this section of the M1 any time soon:-)

It's the Towers sticking a finger up I reckon!

 

I wonder if E-on will change their 26% rise to 30% to include the finances to correct this **** up?

 

edit: Just realied your pic will be gone in 2 mins, so here it is for future ref

 

 

edit2: It's changed already :o

 

edit3: completely gone now :(

It's piddling down. Sheffield cries for it's lost...

 

Myself and my brother have worked all over England in the past 3 years. No matter how far or how long we have worked away we have always know when we were 'home'. We knew we were home when we saw 'our' towers.

I don't care to remember how many times i have come around the looooong bend of the M1 motorway towards Sheffield and seen the towers and thought/said, indeed SCREAMED.... 'We're home'.

For as long as i have been alive they have been there. A tribute to Sheffield's industrial past. A part of what we in Sheffield are.

Good video here, looks like the first down, falls dangerously close to the viaduct... here's hoping!

That's another great vid Vini. You can see the north tower STOP for a millisecond while it decides not to be beaten. :thumbsup:

Not long since got back home - sorry for joining the thread a bit late. Some of the remaining North Tower has fallen down on it's own (more's the pity) so it looks like they've given a good 'finger' to Eon, but not for much longer :(
