    Gabe got on the case and asked if I was free in Norwich in a few weeks, so a few weeks later he arrived and we decided to go have a little scout about and see what was happening.

    Checked a few drains, but they were all rusted shut, checked a bunker, that was sealed tight, so that only left the crane that has appeared up at the hospital.
    That concluded the afternoon, so I dropped him off and went to the the school run bits and bobs..T scoffed down and off to pick matey 'magpie Tommy' up and then to pick up Gabe.

    Magpie Tommy ' lets play spot the explorer in the pub' we walk into the pub and are greeted by a bloke covered in white chalk from the mines.... Well no need to try guess how he had passed the afternoon.
    So we headed up to the hospital, and after playing dodge the CCTV camera we found a nice easy route in.

    From the looks of the site it looked like it is going to be something big, and this is what it would appear they are building.

    The new £4.5m unit will be next to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Mulbarton ward and will house two more linear accelerators, bring the total of six ‘linacs’ at N&N. The first will be installed once the building work is complete, due to be by the end of summer next year, and a second is due to be installed in 2015.

    This equipment provides radiotherapy for a range of cancers and works by using high energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells.

    Consultant oncologist Jenny Nobes said radiotherapy is often used instead of surgery, and can have the same effectiveness.

    She said: “Hopefully waiting times will be less for radiotherapy and more patients will be able to benefit from this locally.â€￾

    The plans also include a new orthovoltage treatment room with equipment which can treat cancers which sit near the surface of the body, such as some skin cancers.

    The new build will include a waiting area, office space and two consulting rooms and to help cancer patients avoid a hospital admission, there will be space for a new Acute Oncology Suite to provide rapid assessment and treatment for patients who are experiencing complications with their cancer or its treatment.

    About 200 patients receive radiotherapy each month at the N&N, with patients referred from other local hospitals including the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn.


    Now for some photos.

    After we climbed down, we were just getting ready to take a few ground shots, when every generator started up and more floodlights popped on, so at this point we cut our visit rather short and headed of back to the car..

    After that we dropped my mate of and decided for some easy climbing at the Mecca bingo halls. Had the usual fun here, easy climb, just got on the roof, when security pop out to have a fag and chat on the phone very loudly for ages.
