As one goes up, another comes down.
This drone footage by Sheringham-based photographer and filmmaker Chris Taylor shows how the town's Splash pool and leisure centre is being demolished, right next to the building that is to take its place.
The outer facade of Splash, on Weybourne Road, has already been taken off, revealing its wooden panels, and a large digger is now on site gradually taking it apart.
Construction work is continuing on Splash's replacement right next to the demolition site.
This building, expected to be opened in August, will include a 25m main pool, a 13m by 8m learner pool with moveable floor, a 'splash pad', community rooms and café.
Splash was opened in May 1988 by Princess Diana. The facility's water slide, wave machine and gently sloping 'beach-like' shallow end won it many fans, and there was a public backlash when it was revealed these features would not form part of the replacement pool.
