Before I post today's demolition photos, here's one of the building that was on William Street. (I went up Communication Row when I looked at the demolition).

Taken in 2015.



Pavilion was next to Serco.






Also going is this building, seen in 2014. Submarine, Royal Navy Nautical Club Royal Marines

Onto the demolition photos.

First saw the site from the end of Holliday Street.





It was Cedar House for Serco.





Communication Row



The former naval club is still standing, but the car park is closed.
