Didcot power station towers demolished

Always interesting to see this sort of Demolition
(And in Reverse too !)
Three disused cooling towers at Didcot A Power Station have been demolished with more than 180kg of explosives.
The explosion, which flattened 36,000 tonnes of material, lasted less than a minute and was streamed live online.

Before and after. Top photo taken last Monday, bottom photo this morning. Both from a point on the Ridgeway about 10km from Didcot.

Thanks for the photos.
The romance of Didcot. When do they start knocking down Swindon?
