Undermining

By mrswoolybill
Work progresses slowly at the old Hexham Baths site. I am wondering how far they are going to excavate...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Looks like there're keeping the facade for the next incarnation of the building.
That will keep the character of the street as it was no matter the use of the replacement.

Nice image too Moira, with the old building standing strong, even if you can just make out the supports.

Some serious digging going on here, Moira. For the obligatory basement carpark to go with the expensive apartments, I guess.
Nicely composed and presented.

Do hope they are keeping that gorgeous frontage! What are they building there Moira? See, excellent photojournalism as we are all asking questions!

Lovely processing too.

That's a big hole. Hope they find what they're looking for before the rains come back and fill it up.
Very nice mono image Moira.

A good capture of building work or lack of it? I like your treatment, with the great sky background.

Yes, it's going to be apartments, and a basement car park would make sense.
The fašade is being kept - so long as it doesn't collapse, as happened with a similar project in Newcastle...
Thanks folks!
