Arndale House/Tower, Manchester




Constructed between 1972 - 1975, this place has had it's fair share of attention over the years for various reasons, the 1996 IRA bomb attack, the infamous 'Arndale Challenge' and the fact it's probably Manchesters biggest eyesore

It's yellow tiles have earned it the inauspicious nickname of 'Europe's biggest public toilet'

Also it is said by some to be the low point of Manchester's architecture where utilitarian modernism had become dominant



The Arndale is one of the few buildings that dominates Manchester's skyline, I took my first ever shot of this place whilst on the roof of the Premier Inn last year (Goodtimes)




I have tried to crack this place for a long time now

My recent injury put plans on hold but I was still determined to get up there

Security is real tight, the sun wasn't shining, so not wanting to be spotted I only grabbed a few pics before heading out


Arndale Challenge WHUT?













....Take pictures and leave ONLY
