Marconi Demolition and Bramford Dereliction, Chelmsford and Bramford - 12th March 2013

Thanks to the local council somehow failing to list the iconic Marconi House, factory and building 720 of the New Street Works in Chelmsford, the buildings - constructed in 1912 and said to be the world's first purpose-built radio factory - are implausibly trashed in order to build of a bunch of generic flats and apartments. That shocking sight is bookended by a very wet day in Diss, and the slow ongoing demolition of the buildings in and around the old British Xylotol site in Bramford, near Manningtree.
