Tinsley Towers

If you live in the UK and have been watching the news, you would have heard about a famous Sheffield landmark, the Tinsley Cooling Towers, being demolished in the early hours of today.

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.

Life changes so quickly. Some changes are good but some just happen and we have to accept them. I find that the older I get the less I want change to happen, why is that? Something to wonder about, huh? Oh well, take care, Linda
