Being new to the area, we weren't really aware of their history, but it was the landmark that the children would see and know they were in Sheffield and were nearly home.
Yesterday tea time, they were travelling south down the M1 to spend the week with their dad and grandparents. D took this photo and sent it to me by text.
The towers were situated right next to the motorway, so this change to the Sheffield landscape will be really obvious. Meadowhall doesn't have quite the same appeal somehow.
