    Further to industry's post here are some more of the shots I took on a visit in November. Dont ask about access - slightly dodgy work reason to be there, well kind of, I just kept my mouth shut and got snapping!

    Fascinating (well for a car park) history this place has. By the time it was finished the architectural style was already out of fashion. It subsided almost as soon as it was opened. Fire regulations and design faults meant the roof top restaurant was never developed. But it did get its big break in Get Carter. Were it not for Mr Caine's appearance no doubt it would have gone years ago like its sister the Tricorn center.

    This is a small stair way to a back store room for the ill fated restaurant, if you look carefully in the photo there is actually a beer barrel up there, so maybe there was a party or something held in the restaurant at some time over the years

    the store is full of junk

    Thats it for now, now waiting for demolition to take place in February.
