The end of an era!

Massey Ferguson (the tractor builders) were just up the road from where I live.  Like most industries it went into decline, got taken over by AGCO, an American company and finally folded.  The site of the factory has been gone quite a while now and a massive housing estate has sprung up.  However the office tower has remained while they built around it. Wrangles over whether it should have listed status or not, then attempts to encourage someone to buy and convert it into luxury apartments. Well it all came to a very loud and sad end today changing the skyline forever!
