It has emerged that Southborough Council has made no plan to salvage the distinctive plaster decorative features next to the stage of the Royal Victoria Hall.
The picture and the film below shows the state of demolition up to Sunday afternoon 14th May 2017. It is understood that saving the plaster decorative features would require a tower to be set up next to the stage and that would be too costly and time consuming.
The demolition is being conducted by grabbing sections of the brickwork by machine and dropping them on a “soft area”. This is causing the bricks to be separated from the lime mortar, so allowing some of the red bricks to be reclaimed.
