Can't believe I hadn't done this sooner - tis just down the road from Spiders.
Was a nice chilled explore, not that high but still a good venture. :thumb

~Bit of history
Built in 1942 by Clayton Son & Co of Leeds, the structure is 105ft tall.
Its column-guided design includes three separate massive 152ft diameter sections
which lift telescopically as the holder fills with gas. It is that old that is entirely riveted,
as it's construction predates the use of welding in construction.

This holder can store up to two million cubic feet of gas – enough to supply 2,400 homes for a full day,
or 57,000 homes for an hour. It is the only holder left at St Mark Street,
where at one time there were five enormous holders.
