Default 1 Angel Square, Manchester - Janurary '12 - 11-03-2012, 00:55

Visited with Gone, Tweek, Robehhh and MaybeNot1330


The final part of my Manchester Trilogy was my first night time rooftop.

1 Angel Square is a high rise building currently under construction in Manchester, England.



Upon completion in 2012, it will become the head office of The Co-operative Group.



The building is the first piece of the 800m NOMA development in the northern quarter of Manchester city centre.



Whilst not the tallest building I've been up - The Royal Liver Building is taller - it's certainly impressive to be standing almost 72.5 meters high on a cloudless night. On a clear night Winter Hill transmitter station is clearly visible - 15 miles away.















A huge thanks to Tweek and Gone for playing tour guides on this one. My first night time roof top was a good one!

I've heard it's a bit hairy now, they've upped security apparently

I was here last week, and I'd certainly say so.

Probably going to be one of those "run for it and hope for the best" explores now

Anyone know why they have a massive Italian flag at the top now? It's been there for the past week draped over a section of the roof? Nice shots btw!


It's Dark and Hell is Hot........
