Many thanks to Liam_CH for showing us round the Unisys towers in Brent, showing us all the best places. Explored by Liam, Myself and my friend James, we arrived bright and early, (me already tired at 10:30am, navigating London’s many “WTF?!?!?â€￾ road networks. After locating breakfast in the form of a sausage sandwich from a newsagents and a cup of coffee from a café, we were ready to go inside the buildings.

After making a mad dash across the old car park, we entered into the reception area, and quickly went upstairs to take photos, downstairs could wait.

There is so little information available on these Unisys buildings, although we did find plans from 1968 on the back stairs, and the latest test date on a fire hose was 1996, so an estimated dereliction date of 1996/1997.

There is evidence of fire, and parties inside the building, but the place is heavily stripped. The roof is pretty incredible, and the kitchen area is very interesting, with a slick of rain water, mixed with 1996 chip fat which nearly sent me flying headlong into a stove, its also murder to get off, as you stick to it like fly paper. We didn’t explore the second tower, as Liam said there was no point, it was too similar and not as interesting.

After Unisys we headed off to Collindale hospital, but my friend James was weary of the asbestos, so opted out, and Liam had to get back, and I didn’t want to go alone. Once again; many thanks to Liam for taking us to both places.

It was really hard to cut the photos down to a proper amount!
