Glad to see it open, though sad to see what's on the cards. I got chased by security and police when I tried this a while back, scooted down the wirral way and hid in a bunker, lol. Never did post them pics.

Are the console shelters still on the roof?

I recognise your icon from a building about a mile away, some nice graff in there.

Yes the 2 console shelters are still on the roof but I did not try to climb up to them. There are some more pics on 28DL showing the one at the back.
Yes the icon graff is from the nearby building which i'm sure is a related site.

Does that mean the firewatchers shelters have been removed? If so, does anyone know where to?

(the one at IWM North isn't a 'local' one, it came from East Midlands Electricity Depot, Robinson Way, Telford Industrial Estate)

That's right, iirc there were two consul shelters on that roof. Hope they've been saved.

Brilliant photo's, especially black and white give it an edge.
