Skywatch Friday: Demolishing The Shell Station

The Shell filling station on Dowson Road is now fenced off. It will be closed for 13 weeks while it is completely revamped. Here the pumps and canopy roof have already gone and they are tearing down the canopy supports.

You can see how it used it look in a post from January 2012.

A later view showing them digging down for the old fuel tanks can be found on Hyde DP Xtra.

Today's post is a contribution to Skywatch Friday and Friday Fences.


  1. Definitely a good place to have a fence. Great shot.

  2. That's a "Keep Out" fence for sure.

  3. Beautiful sky and interesting post. Wonder if they have to replace the underground fuel tanks?

  4. Nice comparison with the old one. I suppose that this is what is called progress.

  5. i love your blog background. awesome!! great fence shot. (:

  6. Weather looks beautiful on your end.

    ..and also a perfect time for them to be taking that place apart for a "revamp".

    Hope you have a nice weekend.

  7. The old station looked fine - it will be interesting to see the changes they decided were necessary.
