    Default St Crispies


    Been meaning to get in here for ages. Always thought it would be hard with security and neighbors etc. but no - very simple access.
    I did intend going up the water/clock tower but I'm no use with heights and clinging to a metal ladder attached to the side wall 60 - 70 foot up
    would have looked very bad in my y-fronts.
    The bit that interested me most was the projectors in what's left of the cinema - rather akin to artillery.
    Pics



    This picture is slightly out of focus because I was dragging my gob off the floor as a hawk had just floated down the corridor and out of a window. I was trying to not fall through the floor at the time & saw it coming but thought it was another pigeon until it drew level with me about 4 foot away & by then it was too late to use the camera............

    No idea what this alcove was for



    Ceramics



    Fireplace in the air
