In 50 minutes the houses are down.
Demolition of the houses begins
We are required to employ an Ecologist with a Bat license to oversee the removal of the roof tiles in case the Bat which was in the loft at some time is found. The Ecologist arrives and the tile removal is underway. By 2pm the tiles are all removed along with the roof trusses. As I expected no Bats were found!
Finally we are in a position to demolish the cottages. The plant arrives at 7:30.
