Hereford eyesore razed to ground

Hereford Times: A bulldozer brings down part of the derelict Campions restaurant in Hereford. A bulldozer brings down part of the derelict Campions restaurant in Hereford.

WORK has begun to bring down a derelict eyesore near Hereford city centre.

The former Campions restaurant has stood empty on the banks of the River Wye since closing in the 1990s.

But, in the past few days, part of the site has been knocked down by bulldozers.

Planning permission was secured in December 2011 for a five-storey riverside apartment block on stilts.

Applicant Riverside Construction Hereford said at the time that the t-shaped building would boast roof terraces on levels three and four, plus 19 car park spaces and a pedestrian bridge for emergency use.

A hi-tech early warning system was also proposed, to alert car owners should water levels rise.

Silentbull - I agree with you , why remove the comments of stories which are receiving a number of well thought out posts. Perhaps I will do a Lukio and saddle up and ride off to Credenhill Woods for a few days to gather my thoughts..

Bobby, yep, I'm away for a few days.
Can't understand why they have removed the comments regarding the Crimestoppers reward regarding the "racist" writing, have the Authorities seen some of the writing on the road signs in Wales against the English , if they have they have done nothing about it, what's good for one is good for the other. If it isn't that what causes the unfairness .Farewell for the time being.

I agree with Shadowstorm, I enjoy reading the rubbish from the Posters. It really is something I look forward to.
As for Schiztroll, your words are just brief and unpleasant and do nothing to brighten up the day.
