Hello again. As promised, heres part 2 of my trilogy on Powergen.
This time the rooftop. (if mods want to move this to high stuff , feel free, i was just trying to keep the reports together) .
Anyway, this rooftop offers amazing views of Birmingham and Solihull and everything in between, and the baby mast on top is a bonus. Access is through the lift room and up some once red ladders . (i say "once red" cause the rungs of the ladder are thick with pigeon cack ) Id recomend a mask in this area as the amount of pigeon associated mess would make you believe they were storing the stuff here.
As i said, the views are something else here on a clear day and are even better at night. Ill only include 1 night pic tho cause iv not figured the art of long exposure and its the only one that was anywhere near decent lol.
Again, visited over 3 nights with @plod @Buffalo and @DdotMC
On with the pics :-)

Secca is shite atm, drive past it several times a day...very very easy access!
I can confirm, secca are shite at the moment, the entrance to the building is incredibly easy to spot from the main road and I sat on the mast at the top for 10 minutes in daylight!
