    On the way home from a weekend away I thought I would pop in to old chelmo and see if I could find a decent climb. As it happened I stumbled upon the shortest crane in history.
    Behind the wheatsheaf pub there is a hotel being built. The crane was a maximum of 80 Ft so far from epic but always worth a climb.

    I prefer cranes to roofs because I can see who is around me.

    I did shoot a long and boring and rather pointless video too.

    I had a stab at the red ones in the background. All in all I visited the site 11 times and without fail the cranes were locked and barriered off. I took various measures all legal ones and still there was no safe way to do them that wouldnt have ended up with being caught. I mooched the buildings and basements, shot a shed load of video there but nowt worth posting.
