    First of all, thanks has to go out to Mffp for the tip-off on entry into the building itself, although it seems that a potential entry I had discovered probably works too. But never mind, his way is much easier (most of the time)!

    This was over the course of two visits, the first being with Olz9181 and Robbiekhan and the second visit with zmaricz. As there's not been a report in a while since security was upped in the summer here's some information on the building shamelessly ripped from skyscrapernews.com:

    The typical view inside the building. It's all been stripped completely as Zurich relocated their offices to Whiteley.

    Not all that interesting...

    However, the roof is where it's at.

    I'm sure some of the other guys will be along at some point to make their additions (and put my pics to shame).
