    It’s been a busy time with me enjoying a few new sites and looking for future fun, with my love of cranes and a fear of heights to conquer the following quick explore presented itself. It was short and I never intended it to be report worthy (just a quick crane climb) but the pictures came out well and the site itself was rather unconventional.


    No history on this one I’m afraid, if anyone knows anymore about this building I would be interested to know.


    While reccing I spotted this cherry along Victoria embankment and since I wasn’t far from Blackfriars I thought it would be worth plodding over to. Once outside the building (or so I thought) it was apparent that the road was so busy that access could be an issue. With a few peeks into the site reassuring me of a safe entry I was all set. It took 15 mins before a lack of people and cars made entry possible, within no time at all I could tell this wasn’t your average building site.

    What confronted me was the façade of a building, supported by a massive steel frame and beyond this outer wall was nothing. Quickly proceeding to the entrance showed a gaping hole where I presume a building once stood. Descending the scaffolding to the worksite was easy and aside from a few diggers and building materials there wasn’t much to see.

    Cranes were the order of the day so up I went and clambered up onto the counterweight to enjoy a beautiful panorama of the river. A few heart stopping moments when police sirens sounded and some drunk suits walked by shouting (I thought I had been spotted). I spent a while relaxing up there people watching and enjoying a drink before heading up to the winch.

    Nice views all round, especially of South bank tower and the OXO tower. I exited much to the bemusement of someone walking by, gave him a nod and then took the quickest route towards a bed.


    I believe this used to be Audit house, possibly used by the national audit office?
