Bummer. I'm especially annoyed cos I only managed an hour in here before finding myself in the wrong spot between some idiot kids noisily smashing stuff up and security with his dog. Unfortunately I was collateral damage.
There really isnt much stuff like this anymore this side of the Channel

While on my travels today I stopped at The Boys Village and here and sadly both are being ripped down. When I turned to go to the boys village there were two big tippers. one coming out and another going in. At Cwm I couldn't see much but what I could see was loads had gone :(

Yes, demolition is has really progressed, with the site now 50% - 60%* rubble perhaps (*not a scientific or informed calculation). However, there may be delays to the demolition of at least one structure - the Charging Tower (which was still in-situ last Saturday connected to the VERY rickety, leaning and buckling hopper structure: Peregrine falcons are currently nesting in and/or around the Tower, also, there was also a colony of bats at the base of the tower with warning signs up to prevent entry due to their presence. Not sure if the bat colony is still there (doubtful) but at least one family of falcons definitely are.

Also last weekend, there were also two parties occurring in the fields either side of the Works. A bit surreal hearing the laughter of girls and Kanye West drifting over the air while exploring the site and dodging the active security patrols.

I could see the falcons about just wasnt sure which bird it was, they were going crazy when i was close to the tower, im amazed it didnt alert the security cabin.

They were going crazy when we were there too, but even when we were on the other end of the site, so either the little 'uns were being stalked by an animal or someone else was there. Security confirmed it was Peregrins, but there was no mention of the bat species. Yes, the cabins aren't too far away but they are also very close to the big genny, so that probably masks some of the noise from further inside the site I guess.
