Tickets and Parcels Office Demolition- Longbridge

The demolition of the Tickets and Parcels Office at Longbridge was underway during the week ending 15th June 2012, although when I passed the building on Thursday 14th June, there was little outward sign of the fact - other than the scaffolding over the front facia. However, by Wednesday 20th June, this was the state of play. This was the only wall left standing, and the rest of the building lay in dust and rubble.

Longbridge Booking Office Twilight - 2012

This rather evocative scene at Longbridge shows the pointed roof of the old Tickets and Parcels office (on the right of trhe frame) with just a few months of its existence remaining. It's 16th January 2012, and I'm standing on the rise of the hump bridge on the Bristol Road, almost beneath the spot where the conveyor bridge used to cross above the road. Just the other side of the hump is Longbridge traffic island, and the road to Rednal.
