    I had a look here whilst the site guys were at lunch, still as tight as ever.
    Got chatting when they returned, they are just working externally at the mo and guy in charge reckons they are only allowed into the foyer to store their gear and not in the building due to the asbestos.
    Asbestos people due in soon for 2-3 months to strip it out, demo not scheduled until 2014. He did say access no problem once the asbestos work is done, absolutely no way he was letting me in no matter how much i asked.
    Metal barriers are at the front only.

    Waiting game it seems then CS. Remember Gone and I watching fishy climb a lamp post onto that canopy, all windows and even vents were breeze blocked, all exterior doors nailed from inside and out. As with most theatres roof access is viable, but getting up there is virtually impossible.

    I imagine this will be similar to BBC on Oxford Road and achievable only once demo begins. What we really need is for some people based in Manchester to keep tabs on it - but Mancheter is quiet for explorers these days.

    It has been done though, about 3 years ago.

    All the front canopy has been removed now and all the builders stuff which was there has gone, so it looks as though CS was correct and the next stage will be the Asbestos people coming in.

    The canopy is completely gone now. I may have access but it's a slim chance and would require some graft!
