At last - an eyesore is no more

The derelict former carpet shop at 71 Lower Hillgate was bulldozed last week to cheers from residents and local business people.

Built in the mid-19th century, the building has suffered 20 years of neglect since it was last used in the 1980s.

It was recently voted one of Stockport's top 10 most hated buildings.

The area will now be landscaped.
