The final chapter was nearing completion at the former Rushden HQ of Hunts the Printers; the factory area was being demolished during some extremely hot weather in April 2018.
So much so that one of the contractors was taken poorly during the record breaking high temperatures for April in this neck of the woods, as we felt the heat of 28C.
Before Hunts moved in in 1974, the building was used by the "British United" (B.U.) shoe machinery company. They had been in the town for nearly one hundred years, during which time boot and shoe manufacturing was at its height.
Stanley L Hunt (printers) shut down at the end of 2015, after being in Midland Road for forty one years.
The frontage is now a listed building so it will live on as part of the planned usage for apartments.
As you can see in some of the shots the bricks had been cleaned, and were stacked in neat piles.
I was kindly granted permission to take some of the shots of the old yard. With all of the work going on it was pretty dusty in the wind that was blowing, but three hours later we had a thunder storm, with very heavy rain yet again.
