    Visited with Speed and Rigsby.

    This has been on the cards for a while but it's taken a while to find a time when all of us were available to attempt it. Today, we succeeded and the inside was not disappointing. It was like finding a hall round every corner and all the rooms, despite seeming quite modern, were pretty elaborate.

    Security are supposed to be pretty hot here but apart from a few vans and cars, we saw no sign of them luckily. The tower is incredible and it was often said that there was no way in but we found it in the end. However, it's covered in aerials so the views aren't great but it looks great from the outside.

    We got round pretty much the whole place with no problems and even tried the chapel which is separate from the rest of the complex but sadly, it wasn't meant to be.

    Rigsby has covered the history in his report so I won't bother. Here's the photos:thumb

    It was always doable, just depends how hard you try.

    I think we came to the conclusion that the tower was purely decorative but if anyone knows any different, please enlighten me. It is covered in Orange aerials....I had excellent phone reception :cool:

    ahhhh ok, the tower looks good anyway :)

    ive seen a couple of reports on it from before, but they both either involved security fairly quickly or weren't as extensive as this. maybe security have got bored so well done for getting there.
