The Middleton Arms is now nothing but rubble.

The 87-year-old pub has been a real landmark in the area, but bulldozers completed the job on Saturday. The site will now be cleared before work starts on building a new Aldi store.

There are some more photos and reaction on the Middleton Arms facebook page.
