The final stages of demolition work at the former Rolle College site in Exmouth are taking place ahead of construction of Exeter Deaf Academy’s new home.
These pictures show demolition work taking place at the former Rolle College site ahead of construction of Exeter Deaf Academy’s new home.
Last year, the deaf academy was granted planning permission to construct its new home on the site in Exmouth.
Pictures taken by Exmouth photographer David Bunton show bulldozers knocking down the former college.
A spokesman for Exeter Deaf Academy said this is the last building to be demolished to make way for student accommodation.
The spokesman added: “We expect to have the site cleared by March and are firmly on track to commence the build in May.
“The doors of our new Deaf Academy will open for the beginning of the academic year in September 2019.
“Exmouth is a town with a strong sense of community and we are already receiving such a warm welcome.
“Being an active part of this community is at the heart of our vision for the new Academy.”
