    The Lloyds Building



    The Lloyds building. A previous lead that is more than likely on most of the London explorers radar by now. Sections of the building have been scaffed for a fair amount of time now but its location and nature of the building meant it was never going to be a simple rock up with no recce and get to the roof within the same hour. Oli had reccy'd a few times prior and myself twice. Armed with the little bit of knowledge we had Oli, Andrew, Katie and myself headed over to give it a final look before going for it. When we got there quite a bit had changed and there where a few new sections of scaff...

    Still not deterred and charged with a determined approach we planned out our route and 40 minutes later managed to get in

    From here it was pretty much straightforward up the scaff stairs tiptoeing as lightly as possible and as swiftly as possible past 10+ floors of live offices with clear glass floor to ceiling windows. Good job it wasn't Monday morning!

    The roof didn't disappoint and likewise with many of LDN's rooftops its never always about the height. Location, Features, History and prominence in the London skyline also play a huge role. It genuinely is an amazing roof and I have a lot of respect for Richard Rogers for breaking the mould and designing something different and Fresh. These are the characteristics an iconic London Landmark should posses!

    Massive thanks to Oli, Katei and Andrew for the company. It was pretty special. Shit pictures but good times and a nice memory :p:

    Big respect to this guy as well. The things he is climbing that look like ladder-esque are the flimsiest things you've ever touched. ​
