i was riding the 18 back from Upton when i went past the heights and noticed one of them had all the glass windows removed and fencing around.
seems like they're finally demolishing all 3 of them (not sure about the lone one near Cherry Tree Road) from the top down.
(no explosives sadly)

thats millhey heights well was in the good old days, i grew up there, and was allowed up there to the 13th floor last week to see our flat we grew up in as children, while they were a nice community, i took some pics if anyone is interested
the demolition guys said this block is being taken apart as its too close to the houses, but the other two are being blown up when they are empty,

Any times and dates of the other two being blown up ,I reckon Bidston Hill looking over Fender Valley would be a good vantage point.

High rise flats down Birkenhead are getting soft stripped over the next few weeks, then covered in scaffolding over the next 7 weeks, then demolition.
