One local resident, June Player, told the Bath Chronicle: 'Churchill House may have gone, but we have not.'
Wilkinson Eyre Architects' proposal for a transport interchange in Bath resulted in the demolition of the unlisted former electricity office headquarters, which has been the subject of conflict for nearly a year between heritage groups and Bath and North-East Somerset Council.
Despite petitions, protest marches and an embarrassing U-turn from the council leader who originally gave the go-ahead to have Churchill House demolished, the building has been reduced to rubble.
In a last-gasp attempt to save the building, campaigners tried to have just its facade incorporated into the transport interchange's design, but developer Multi Development argued that this would involve too many technical difficulties.
Earlier this year it was rumoured that Wilkinson Eyre's designs might be altered, but Multi Development rubbished this suggestion.
Angry protestors have dubbed plans for Wilkinson Eyre's tower, which forms part of the wider £360 million SouthGate transport interchange, the 'busometer'.
