    Default Derby Tower - Birmingham


    Spotted this group of 4 tower blocks with joe on the way back from the Stoke social, Given a choice between 3 of the towers we went for the one that wasnt coverd with phone masts!. Most of the 17 floors were pretty stripped & were in the last stages of asbestos removal But it was still interesting to see the differances between the interior decor of the flats. Hopefully RM will post up some interiors later & i'll dig out mine & some better exteriors when i get a chance.

    Cheers for this one WOTS :)
    Did you manage to get any pics from the roof? Are they planning to blow up this tower, or just doing a refurb job on it?

    There blowing up 3 of the 4 blocks - the fourth is still part occupied with burnt out bits and a general air of fookedness :)

    I've got some roof shots but my hardrive is so full right now that i cant start photoshop so you'll have to excuse the delay!

    A few more photos, I quite liked this place (first towerblock i'd done) It was a cool bonous explore after the stoke event the day before.

    The roof:

    I think this wallpaper is fashionable again now!



    And finally a album cover anyone?

    Thanks RM & Wots. Like the pics, but blimey, those rooms seem small! Cool roof shots. :D
