THESE fantastic pictures show the aftermath of the first phase of the Fiddler’s Ferry demolition.

Four of the 115m cooling towers came crashing down on Sunday, changing the skyline forever.

It’s been a few days of thick mist so not many people have been able to catch a glimpse of the change.

But Warrington Guardian Camera Club member Allan Mason has been able to capture these incredible shots of the site following the demolition.

As well as the new skyline, the pictures show the empty pits of where the cooling towers stood for almost 50 years.

Following Sunday’s demolition, Peel NRE, who acquired Fiddler’s Ferry in 2022, has revealed the next steps for the site.

They said the next phase of work moves towards firstly clearing the area of debris.

Then the important work of transforming the area in accordance with the proposed masterplan will begin.

Peel NRE previously revealed a 10-15 year mixed-use masterplan for the 820-acre area, which is one of the largest brownfield sites in the area.

It will be guided by the development framework which Peel intends to consult on in January.

The Cuerdley site has already been earmarked for housing and industrial use.
