The cooling towers, which were originally part of Blackburn Meadows power station, were reduced to rubble at 3am on August 24, 2008.
The north tower was only partially demolished on the night, though, and the work had to be finished manually.
The towers were once an integral part of people's lives, an ever-present sight for residents living in the Tinsley area and a checkpoint to motorists on the M1.
They were also part of an extensive industrial landscape that has now drastically changed.
