Post High Point/Yorkshire Bldg Society, Bradford - July 2011. - 09-07-2011, 12:43


High Point/Yorkshire Building Society, Westgate

Ojay/Squirrell/MJS



The former headquarters of the Yorkshire Building Society was built in the 1970's

Topping out at 131ft, it's the highest rooftop in the City



In March 2010, it became the venue for an illegal rave, with over 500 youths, mainly Mancunians arriving by the coachload

I know a few people who attended on the night, sadly it was shut down before it even started... Busted! :(

I've wanted to have a mooch in here for an age now, and as we passed by in search of drains we somehow found our way inside and onto the rooftop as you do

The views were amazing, however the building itself is f00ked with fuck all left worthy of reporting

As we crept about the place it was soon apparent we weren't alone as a team of pikeys were on with stripping the place, that said we hastily left!


Lower Rooftop





Don't look down




High Point








"Hey Squirrell, I can't get a signal up here"

Fuck it I'm off back down

I've wanted to see inside this place since March 2010. Driving around Bradford with Gone and Appo, waiting for details of the rave's location to be released, we saw this place and were desperate to try getting in, we thought we'd be in the bowels of this one when the info was released and would miss out on the rave.

How wrong we could be!

Nice one.


Smoke dope. Worship Satan.
