Sheffield Supertram : Pictures : Grange Tower demolition

On April 24th 2005, the last of a set of fifteen tower blocks overlooking the Sheffield skyline was demolished in a controlled explosion.

Grange Tower was the last surviving high-rise block of flats on the Norfolk Park estate, through which Supertrams Halfway route runs. The demolition of these tower blocks has meant a substantial decrease in passenger numbers on this section of the tram network, but the area is now starting to be redeveloped with lower-density housing.
