    About 94m high and 25 floors.

    Visited a few times with JackF.

    London Bridge Station, The Shard, and Guys Hospital from the roof.

    On a later visit only a few weeks later Shard had made good progress.

    Strata to the south.

    The intersect of Borough High Street and Southwark Street with the entrance to London Bridge tube station.

    The roof (and Jacks tripod).


    Later they started actually taking the building down and put a crane up.

    External.


    It seems they have a few diggers at the top and chuck the rubble down the stairwells and lift shafts, then knock the floor out and repeat.

    It was a bit surreal seeing the diggers at altitude.


    Then we headed over to the walkway between the crane and the building a few floors down.

    North.

    I was laying down on the walkway trying to stay out of shot. It was strangely relaxing so I stayed there longer than necessary enjoying looking up at the sky, the crane and the flapping tarpaulins while the city carried on beneath.

    Sadly the top of the crane was locked so this was as high as we could get. :(
