Goodbye, lovely ugly towers…

Thanet District Council have voted to demolish ‘one of east Kent’s most iconic landmarks’ (according to the East Kent Mercury), the Richborough cooling towers.

The Mercury says that the towers are ‘an unsightly blight on the countryside’ to some people, whereas other locals have nicknamed the towers the Three Sisters or the Salt and Pepper Pots.

I will miss the towers; I pass them everyday on my way to work, and cannot imagine a towerless landscape.
