It's been a year or so since I last went and got busted. But a change of camera and a wider lens meant that I wanted to go back and get some shots that I can be happy with. Wanted to get a few more sites in the Lincoln area done and had a look at rauceby asylum which wasn't my cup of tea. While it looks like work is being done to St J's it's only been confined to the external to the building as far as I can see.
The Royal York Hotel,a fine Art Deco style building completed in 1935 , replacing the original Victorian hotel of the same name. Closed in 2006. My guess is that it will be turnt into flats in the near future!

Grain Tower ...or No 1 The Thames according to the Post Office, although I am not sure how they deliver post to this place!
If you get it wrong on this explore you either have to spend an uncomfortable 12 hours on the structure or get very wet walking back ! Beware !
Every time I have visited this place the weather has been crap ! So on this occasion and after defrosting various parts of my body over a period of days I added a little processing to these pics to try and make them a little more dramatic !
Cheers for looking
There is an excellent bit of history here for those of a more historical persuasion http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/g/grain_tower/index.shtml
The beast in all its glory
The modern extension
the old bit !
the view of the new extension from the roof of the old..
the gun placement
the way up is easier than the way down..that handrail was a bit loose !
the view across the water to some power station..sadly not abandoned !
A view of the tower
a hole in the wall..
That's it..thanks for looking..if you go here..check the tides ! oh and wear stout footwear !
