Heritage Destroyed

More of Marple's heritage was destroyed this week, when a WWII command post was flattened by contractors preparing a work site ready for next years repair of Dan Bank.

The work site will probably be there for 12 - 18 months. The command post has been there for 60 years.

An unusual construction, with two rooms each with a metal arched roof.

The arched riveted steel roofs were the last thing to be seen of what was probably a unique relic in the borough.
