5 Cheapisde History In the middle ages, Cheapside began as a market. As the number of businesses grew so did the number of markets in the capital. The fire of 1666 destroyed Cheapside. In the 19th century the area regained a new name for trade. Shops and restaurants thrived throughout the Victorian Era, but have now been replaced with business buildings and concrete structures. 5 Cheapside was a concrete building referred to as the Octagon building, because it had eight sides. The building was given planning consent in 1963, but was not constructed until 1968. The building was a rare survivor of 1960 architecture, but was threatened with demolition and replaced with a new modern building. My visit After a very successful explore under London, a rooftop was definitely needed, visited with Gabe & Southside Assassin, we waited outside, and waited, and waited, then the whole word came over and spoke to us, all intoxicated of course, we then waited some more, the street got busier and busier, we thought it wasn't going to be our night, until there was a pause in the madness and Southside made a break for it and over he went, so then after more waiting lol Gabe and I made a dash for it and in we went! A very nice rooftop and even though not high, was a great explore and to add my first crane, so something easy was definitely appreciated, I now admire the people that climb this unbelievably high cranes, respect. The exit was a chuckle as well, and as we vacated the premises the police drove past.....perfect timing not......but they didn't see us fortunately. Really enjoyable rooftop and thanks to Gabe for taking Southside and I, awesome. Thank you for looking and big thanks once again to Gabe!
