    Arrow Dalton Tower, Birmingham, Jan 11


    Some 61 metres high and 22 floors we have the old on site flats for students.

    Some stuff about it

    Aston University has both standard (shared bathroom) and en-suite accommodation on campus - 2,300 rooms in total of which 85% are ensuite. All campus accommodation is less than five minutes' walk from the main building, and approximately five minutes' walk from Birmingham city centre. In the 1970s, three towers containing student accommodation were constructed on the Aston University campus; Dalton, Lawrence and Stafford Towers. Stafford Tower has two flats per floor, each with nine single study bedrooms sharing a large kitchen and bathroom. Lawrence and Dalton Towers are due to be demilished during 2011

    I actually came here with a few fellow explorers a few nights before but forgot tripod so never really took any pictures. That night there was no security. So i pop up again tonight but security was in tonight. With my stealth and ninja movements I made it in and up the 21 flights of stairs (I nearly died. I am not fit) I was back on the roof for some pics.

























    Hope you enjoy anyway
