Climb Cranes – Feb 2010

without comments

We turned up at Heron looking to climb the big tower. They had action on the ground floor and delivery lorries parked up waiting. We gave it an hour, stuffing our faces with McDonalds and then decided to fill our boots with something else. So through a hole in the wall we went, into another building site we’d not seen before.

So through the hole and up the stairs, pitter patter as we went. Onto the roof, play on the half built stairwells to the highest point of the building. Surrounded by glorified chicken wire, the view is cluttered by a grid of metal designed for safety.

Down to the crane, up the crane and onto the gantry, for some beautiful views of the financial area of London. It’s not called Bank for nothing.
