The Bridge Hotel, Sutton Bridge, has been demolished

For some unaccountable reason I had long had the ambition to visit Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire. I finally got there in 2009 on the day England won back the Ashes.

The most impressive structure in the town was the Crosskeys Bridge, but after that it was the Bridge Hotel.

It was standing empty in 2009 and today I came across a Spalding Guardian report suggesting it was demolished this summer:
Demolition work has begun on a former Sutton Bridge hotel. 
Workmen were spotted on the Bridge Hotel site on Sunday clearing copper piping from inside and they were on the roof on Wednesday removing the lead tiles.

The pictures here were taken on that day in 2009. The one below shows the rear of the Bridge Hotel from the far side of the Nene.

Not a desperately impressive building, though I can imagine it was quite a local landmark.
