    Never found out what's this building's called and don't know if it's been taken down yet because this visit was almost 1 year ago.
    But apparently this building was voted as the fugliest building in UK sometime ago, but as an architecture student, I kind of like it.
    Got into the site without any problem, no climbing or hacking involved because the wind blew away the barriers, just walked into the building.
    Forgot how many stories was it but it takes some stamina to get up there, on top I've met another 2 explorers we we lurked around for about half an hour until the police spotted us.
    3 police cars came and the officers were like asking us if we're doing drug dealing and shits up there, not friendly at all.
    Anyways, view up there is excellent, probably the tallest building around that area.
    Excuse for my poor grammar because I'm from Hong Kong:D

    It's quite a drab looking building, but some good views. Good effort :thumb

    It's much harder now because a new contractor has moved in.
