Like them or not, the cooling towers of Didcot A have been the 'visual' symbol of Didcot for over 40 years. Not many towns (and some cities!) our size can claim to have a striking and widely recognised visual symbol as the Didcot Towers.
But three of them have already gone and the rest are scheduled to go early next year with the completion of the demolition by late 2016.
Once the towers have gone, they've gone. For good.
So, what should be the next visual symbol of Didcot? The Railway Centre? The Station? The Orchard Centre? The Cornerstone? Or maybe something else, maybe our wonderful countryside. Or perhaps something completely new, something that is not even there yet?
What do you think? Let us know here or on our Facebook Page. I look forward to your comments. Mike
