Adam Kean says he will be paying a visit each week to see the knocking down of both buildings.

Preston City Council closed the Indoor Market to move it into a new custom-built £4million Market Hall under the Outdoor Covered Market.

The 1970s building is due to be flattened along with the Market Hall car park which closed to motorists on Friday 4 January.

Adam Kean has released his first video showing both buildings still standing but internal work beginning to size up the demolition job.

Bradley Group have won the £1.5million contract.

In the building’s place will be a multi-screen cinema and restaurant complex.

Adam said: “I’m hoping to document the full demolition and the building of the new cinema.

“I like to look back at the buildings, that brought so many memories to us in the past.

“I used to visit the Indoor Market every week before it’s closure, mainly for the food stalls.”
