Bowstring Bridge to be demolished next month

Leicester City Council plans to get rid off the Bowstring Bridge with unseemly haste. The feeling that it regards the city's industrial past as a dirty secret is hard to resist.

According to the Leicester Mercury yesterday, demolition is planned to begin on 21 September:

The only obstacle left is an application made by Leicester Civic Society to have the bridge listed, which would block the demolition. A decision on that is imminent.

Tell them it's a church (or theatre).

Then it'll get listed!
