The 80s - 90s
Building 8 Demolition

Building 8 being torn down because it was uneconomic to repair, and the space wasn't needed.
The basement was so vast, that most of the building structure was simply ground into small pieces and filled the cellar
This minimised the disruption to neighbours which would otherwise have been caused by trucks removing the spoil.

The end result was a grassy slope...
