June 2002: Lynn’s skyline changed dramatically with the demolition of the gigantic Muck Works building at South Lynn.

Properly known as West Norfolk Fertilisers, work stopped at the site in 1967 and it was used for storage until 1982. This picture shows the collapsed steel framework at the site in Saddlebow Road which was earmarked for redevelopment in the Nar Ouse Regeneration Area project.
