8 October (Part 2) - What goes up must come down

Larner Road EstateWhile a new 285 foot structure has come to dominate the Erith skyline, seven 150 foot ones that have marred it for the past 45 years are due to come down, the flats replaced by a similar number of ‘low rise’ houses. Given the reputation of the old Larner Estate that can only be a good thing.

The contract to demolish the old blocks and deliver the new has just gone to Wates. Work will start next March and it will take five years to complete the project.

Unfortunately there are no plans to dynamite the tower blocks. They will come down the hard way.

So the windmill is almost twice the height of the tower blocks!
