Going, going, almost gone...former Chron building close to being demolished

Waiting for Video...

The former Chronicle & Echo building in Upper Mounts, Northampton, is close to being completely knocked down.

Demolition crews have been on-site for about two months as they bring down the building to make way for plans for a new Aldi supermarket.

The video, taken by Chron sports editor Jeremy Casey, shows the part of the wall on the Earl Street side of the building being knocked down. The front of the building is due to demolished within the next week.

Dozens of people have been watching progress, including former staff and passers-by.

Aldi bought the land from the Chron’s owners, Johnston Press, in August last year and are due to go out to public consultation on their plans for the site later this year.
