Farewell to a unloved icon of the Newbury landscape

This is probably the only time I’ve managed to take a photo of Stirling Cables tower, in Newbury, which looks remotely pretty.

The Stirling Cables estate has served Newbury well, creating employement for over a century. Now it is largely demolished and its iconic tower was finally reduced to a few stubs yesterday – see photo below.
