    Default Sangra - Leicester - Sept '09


    hello again apologies for the lacks of posts etc, alot been going on lately and not had chance to get anywhere although have seen some brilliant stuff

    anyway i cant offer you much ifo apart from the chap above the door is Cardinal Woolsey who was some priest/monk over the Road at the Abbey in abbey park back in the dark ages

    i allways rember the buiilding as a child looking up at his picture after my dad taking me dog the park for a kick around with the ball, will be sad to see it go as its one of my childhood memories so to speak

    oh yeah visited with Goldie87 comedy access / exit and some tence moments inside when we were convinced security had joined us within the building







    factory floors are partitioned with brick walls which i thought to be very odd



    some hardcore hand dryer mountings there!



    Belgrave Flyover





    fear not they have all been moved to the building that is being kept



    Me on the roof



    Goldie87 decending one of the newer ladders installed for the mobile phone stuff



    having speant the day laying imperal concrete blocks (the big hollow fookers) i was well impressed with the lightweight terracotta walls



    was a really bizzare feeling walking inside between brick walls but looking out onto the Leicester skyline



    only contenst of any intrest were the old knitting machines





    one to nip back for though for some rooftopping shenanigins ;)

    Nice one mate! You are a lot braver than I am. Rooftop Shananigans is not one of my Fortes!
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Very nice - quite an impressive building from the outside and not too shabby views. Those machines look really nice too :)
