    I've been passing these sites in Brixton every day for a while now, I finally got round to checking them out this week. Two rooftops and two cranes in one evening was pretty knackering and I walked away with a nasty gash on my leg after a moment of complacency. A timely reminder that these sites are pretty fucking dangerous and you only have to lose your concentration for a split second for things to go wrong. Anyway, I'm ok that's the main thing. There isn't really much to look down on in Brixton except Brixton Academy, certainly nothing high to speak of. These high apartment blocks are a sign of changing times in Brixton, the hipsters have invaded and house prices have gone through the roof. The area will never quite lose it's identity though, it has way too much character to be transformed overnight. Anyway enough waffle, here are some pictures.

    7. The other rooftop, this must be the highest structure in Brixton I think

    8. The crane is quite a bit higher

    9. Daylight is upon me at this point so I can't hang around for too long, all shots are hand held from this point.

    Cheers guys
    I'm not fazed after a few beers mate, not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing though now that I'm hobbling like Tiny Tim. The tube will be quiet but I wouldn't be able to run if I needed to :(

    Every one a winning photo there :thumb - good to see a bit of south london exposure.

    Just noticed the tinned mackerel fillets and a pepper grinder in pic 6… that’s a cab worker with some refined taste :p
