    Getting High in Barrow

    I've been keeping my eye out for a decent scaff to get some shots over Barrow for a while now, so, when i saw this being erected last week i knew what i was doing with my bank holiday weekend ;)

    Originally had some draining planned with a couple of guys off here but that would have meant certain death after the amount of rain it put down over the weekend.. When it rains, dont go in drains (wait till it stops and climb scaffs instead!)

    Info

    Opened as a Wetherspoons in July 1998, the Wetherspoons website has an abridged history-

    Whilst looking into the buildings history i found an original copy (1889) of the Coop rule book that had somehow made it into a library in Wisconsin :confused It doesn't make for particuarly interesting reading but is worth a look.. Here
