Lead Shot Tower - Chester - April 2012

Visited with NickUK & Gone


Gone mentioned looking at this on the way home from Wales. I can honestly say it was the most disgusting, pigeon infested tower I have ever stepped foot in, truly rank.

It also had the sketchiest ascent I've ever made, ever. The original stairwell has been cut to about 20ft off the ground, it's rusty, full of holes, dents, parts with the external banner missing, scary stuff. We made it to the top after Nick stopped crying about the scary steps.

We got to the top no problems, but there was no access out on the roof, somebody had thrown the ladder down the tower :wanker

Take a mask, cover your face, prepare to get shat on from a height...

Several pigeons were injured in the making of this report...

The top...











Cheers :thumb

Always good to see. That pigeon stuff will keep me out. I remember years ago me and Tristanjay were in the Royal Insurance building in Liverpool.

There was a blocked door that we both pushed open. When we looked around there was three foot of droppings.
