    This actually happens to be my first report of 2014… Four months in, could be worse I suppose.

    Nothing amazing, hardly the tallest crane in the world (although given what we have down this way, might be the tallest in the SW :D).

    This site used to be home to the city's ice rink:

    but since closure at the end of 2012, it's stood empty until demolition started at the end of 2013. It's also home to the O2 Academy, which is to remain open during the project phase.

    A good night with a few good mates and a good view, what more could one ask for around here?

    White balance is all over the shop, but hey ho, life goes on.

    Good stuff mate. Remember skating here years ago, shame that its decrepit but at least it offers some appealing views.
