It's neither iconic nor historic, at least not for any positive reasons any way. I'll be glad to see the back of the eyesore, but can only hope that funds are found to replace the much-missed facility at Coryton Cove instead.

Awful lot of scaffolding going up. Thought it would be easier just to bring in a large catapillar unit on a barge with a jack hammer on it to take it down, than faffing about picking at it.

Is the sea wall still open from the pirates chest to the boat cove while the demolition works is going on?

Nice strong base for the scaffolding, wood planks on sand uhm!. Wonder if they can be used to support scaffolding on water as well. Not a lot of beaches in Swindon I suppose.

What is with the scaffolding? Makes no sense at all.

Health ad safety, you must have heard about that, it's everywhere.

I do wonder why people regard “Health & Safety” as an evil?
