    This strange office building is currently in a state of demolition and renovation.
    A new 700ft Structure ...nicknamed the 'Cheese Grater'...is planned on this site , however only the bottom 10 or so floors ( down to foundations) have been demolished...leaving the top floors intact....
    The result is a rather strange top heavy looking object...that looks very unstable and very strange.
    Visited with Palace Fan.on a lovely blue, clear sky night.
    Access tricky and opportunistic and care is needed as the site floor is unstable and full of debris , holes.
    As ever..PF figured out a way to the stairs.
    The intact levels are chock full of shite and debris..
    Whilst not very high the top level affords some interesting views of surrounding structures....namely Lloyds building ( opposite), The Gherkin, Tower 42 and of course The Willis Building.
    Palace Fan has some crackers...I was enviously eyeing up some of the angles he was taking...I'm sure you will see the gold soon !

    Re: 122 Leadenhall Street , London [29.07.07] Report !

    Another great rooftop mission.
    DF did the ground work on this one, and found us the best of many camera'd spots to get in. Access isn't that hard but *serious* care needs to be taken when dropping in to the area. Concrete boulders, and rein-forcing bar are abundant!
    Roof access was easy but very dark, so a torch is needed.
    Up top was the usual amazing views of our spectacular capital (wouldn't say that in the daytime). As DF said great views of the usual suspects. Shooting them over and over again is still brilliant, with the LLoyds being a photographers (and a UE'ers if you could get on it) dream!

    Anyway, heres mine, and note I got the LLoyds in it full regalia (lights on)! :D
