    Though i would post this in case anyone finds the info useful.
    I've been thinking of popping in there for a while, and ended up in there tonight, tho in the end i didn't take my camera, as i wasn't sure what would be inside.
    Getting in is easy, the camera appears to be on a preset routine, changing every 1min30seconds.
    Access to floors 0-2 is easy, but floors 3 and up have firedoors immovably fixed in position. Floor 15 is open, which is the top floor, but access to the roof is not possible due to piled up concrete. The insides are gutted, but all fire extinguishers are intact, as well as lots of random odds and sods on the lower floors. Worth a look, but don't get excited!
    Not much light inside, so if you go in during the night, take a good torch, and beware of the stairwell, its open and a nasty long drop from the top. Also, i would recommend some sort of dust mask, as there is a lot of thick dust in the air.

    Anyway, thought i would share this, in case anyone is looking to go in there!

    I lived in Nottingham for years. These flats were occupied until recently, when the council finally decided that they were a blight on the sky-line. Pretty much every time you'd go past, there'd be a cop car or ambulance out there. Lenton is pretty well known for having its fair share of crime problems.

    One thing to note is that it's really easy to see the buildings from the main road, especially from high-windowed vehicles like buses. If you're gonna check it out, try to stay on the opposite side of the building, away from prying eyes.

    Hehe, well I meant more along the lines of getting entry. The grounds are lower than the road, and at least one of the tower entrances is very visible - all you'd have to do is look left as you're walking past and you'd see anyone skulking around pretty easily. Also keep in mind that Canning Circus police station is only a half mile up Derby Road, so there'll be cop cars whizzing by all day and night.

    Here's a streetview link from the road.

    Plenty of time, especially once the other 3 are empty. Very easy entry, but not really sure if i would go back, as just not too interesting.

    Its halfway down now, so worth waiting until the next one is emptied. Not sure when that is scheduled to be, but cant be long.

    i'm sure I read that only the once closest to Sainsbury's was occupied now, but I could be wrong.
    There have been Skips outside the block closest to the Church recently

    Digby court, the most eastern one is the next one, it's empty and they are currently setting up the scaffolding.
