    Arrow Southpoint 'tower', Leeds, October 2010


    First had a look at this place last Winter, but having heard that the telecoms mast had been removed and the previously secured door now open I thought it worth another visit. I did try this place again a few weeks ago but was interupted by a bloke with one of his arms almost half gone after a dog attack- I've been a bit wary since.

    There really isn't a great deal to comment on. It's just a tallish building that has been stripped and vandalised internally leaving a shell with no purpose.

    No suprises, no treats. What you see is what you get with this building;

    In through the atrium then;

    Give the lift a try,

    But since there a few things missing,

    Better use the stairs;

    Every floor is similar in appearance;

    The previously secured O2 Door leading on to the roof;

    A narrow staircase through the final levels;

    Finally, an influx colour atop this grim building;

    View from the roof, and it seems leeds has forgotton to change the clocks;

    Similar view during darkness;

    More comparisons-. Which is the best time to photograph Southpoint.

    Is it (A) Daytime;

    Or (B) Nighttime;

    If you thought (B), nighttime, your exactly right.

    Lovely stuff, have often wondered what this is like internally.

    I'd nip in if near leeds, the removal of the O2 transmitter could signal change in the sites status and demolition may soon follow. Just not a very pleasant area at night.

    We keep looking at it when we've been nearby, but get distracted by other buildings in the area :D
