There’s no going back now – the redevelopment of Hemel Hempstead’s Leisure World is well and truly underway.
The photo above shows the scene recently when the centre’s famous tower was removed and lifted from it by a gigantic crane.
A Tesco spokesperson said: “We are really excited about the chance to provide a great new facility for the community.
“Internal strip out works have been completed and we hope that most of the other construction work will be finished by autumn 2014.
“We continue to work closely with Dacorum Borough Council and will keep local people informed as the plans progress.”
