What a difference a few days makes

The slipway demolition started this week and in just two days there wasn't much left!

First the metalwork was cut away using the massive shears.
Then the concrete buttresses were broken up.
The broken concrete was then used to make a causeway for the digger to use to get to the next buttress without going in the sea.
The process was repeated and by the end of day one there was a big gap where the slipway used to be!
Unfortunately the next day the tide prevented too much more work being done but they were able to remove 2 more buttresses.
Next week we're back on spring tides so they should be able to finish the job off.

There's no going back now!
