    There's not much history to this site afaik, just a construction site set to be an apartment complex in Stratford Riverside once completed so I'll get straight to the explore.

    THE EXPLORE
    We found this site after our Strand East Tower climb (Report to be made soon) and decided to give it a go. Entry was ridiculously easy, there was NO secca on site whatsoever :thumb
    Our first visit was in May, there was just about 30 floors at the time iirc. Photos below, enjoy!


    Two iconic London landmarks here: the Olympic Stadium and the Orbital

    Here you can see the Shard and Tower 42 in the distance with a new platform for the crossrail line in the foreground.

    Spotted some sites towards Westfield for a later time :rolleyes:

    My first attempt at light trails, featuring Strand East on the left, report to come soon ;)

    The crane was very tempting but we couldn't find a way up at the time and wanted to leave at that point.

    THE SECOND EXPLORE

    Fast forward two months, I'd just returned to London from abroad and was itching for an explore. I decided to give this place another go but during the day instead. As predicted, we walked straight in without any resistance from the (lack of) security. This place looks even better in daylight:

    The stunning London Aquatics centre designed by the late Zaha Hadid.

    My mate is a crazy nutjob. I couldn't not include this :eek:

    That's Canary wharf over there

    And Canary Wharf again

    THE CRANE
    We managed to get up the crane this time via a sketchy jump between the building onto the frame of the crane. This shot highlights how high we were, roughly 3-5 floors had been added since our last visit.

    Didn't walk the jib, too windy :banghead

    Thanks for reading! This is only my 3rd report so far and I haven't quite got the hang of it yet so any feedback would be helpful, especially as my first report was moved straight to the members section within minutes so I have no idea what's going on with that.

    Belting shot of Canary Wharf at sunset, liking that a lot.
    As for your report being moved to the member's section, it's all about safety/protection/etc. With live construction sites like this it's best to be careful and try and keep it out of the public eye as much as possible, at least until the place is finished. I'm sure someone else will have a better explanation but I think that's the basics...

    Thanks mate, I'm still learning how to take decent photos tbh, just picked up my first dslr very recently.
    Yeah with the location of my other report I understand as that was quite high profile but even with such a standard site like this? If that's the case is there any way that I could move this to the members section considering that I don't actually have access to that yet? @Bolts

    I'm not sure on the answer to either of those questions, your best bet is to get into contact with @Ojay or another of the mods
