I had a wander into town this morning to take a few images of the old Regal Cinema before it was knocked down completely.
The whole area is being redeveloped alongside the River Weaver as it flows through the town centre.
You may remember I did a post about the floating hotel that used to be on the left of this picture.
So far the demolition team have only removed the back of the old cinema.
This is were the screen was... you can make out the three rows of steps where the posh seats used to be.
The land in the front of this image used to be a car park and marina... the marina was originally a ship builders in times gone past.
The marina has also been demolished to make way for the new development...
...this is what it used to look like.
This is what it looked like this morning... I have been doing a bit of research since I got home and it appears they are building a supermarket plus housing on the site but are also building a new marina.
The images below are mock ups of the finished article.
It looks a lot better than empty buildings but I didn't think we needed another supermarket...
...we already have quite a few.
Another area of town not far from here is also having a makeover... I will have a look there next weekend.
