A bit late in getting this report up for various reasons, but anyway here it is now. After meeting up with God, we took a walk round the city centre to check up on some potential new sites and a few old ones. Starting on the Co-op weights and scales building we took a quick run up the stairs on the water tower avoiding the security's occasional stare out of the window of his cabin. Having not been in this building for a couple of years i was gutted(no pun intended) to see the state of it after the fire. Ariving at the top it gave us a commanding view of the IMAX cinema and think tank next door.


Next was onto Masshouse apartments, with no rooftop access we settled for the level14 balcony


lookng out towards the BCFC stadium with UB40's pub in foreground


Not the best shot of the Selfridges building, but the best one i got that night

Onto Dunchurch house for a wider shot of the city centre skyline

Not much else to show from here that hasn't already been covered, so it was back into the centre to try some rooftops we'd spotted earlier in the evening, just had to wait till chucking out time.

Nice and quiet now:)
