DRAYTON – Some just wanted to get outside after a long winter without much to do, others were enthralled by the prospect of an explosion and some people wanted to witness a significant change to the local rural landscape.
Whatever the reason, a sizeable crowd gathered on March 24 to watch the demolition of three silos at Flinkert Farms on Wellington Road 8 on the edge of Drayton.
The silos, each measuring 30 by 100 feet, were felled by explosives under the watch of Adam Ghent of The Crushing Aghent, a company located in Wellington North.
Two of the silos took about seven seconds to tumble to the ground, while the third did not initially fall and required a little more effort.
