Swindon council to dismantle Mechanics Institute roof


The roof of a historic building in Swindon is "so close to collapse" the council has decided to step in and dismantle it.

Work to remove the roof of the Grade II listed Mechanics Institute begins on Monday and all roads around it will be closed for three weeks.
