About 6 years ago myself and Frosty had a go at getting up this. We failed at the time, neither one of us was confident enough to try climbing over the gate half way up.

Fast forward 6 years, I thought I'd have another crack at this while killing some time in Canterbury, then I revisited it again a I had camera issues the first time.

This gas holder is different from most because it was enclosed and as a bonus you can get inside it at the moment as they've cut a whacking great hole in the side. I say was because the actual gas holder that would have been inside the massive structure is gone, they've removed it and the rest of the structure's days are numbered. Want to go and get the best view of Canterbury you'll ever see, go soon, like real soon. Also the acoustics in there are fantastic, I was like a kid in a toy shop making all kinds of noises just to hear the booming echo that just carried on and on and on. . . .

Visited this twice, first time with extreme_ironing and the second time with a non-member, we'll call him 'A'

Not many photos, there's only so many you can take of a gas holder!

There it is! (They are stars, not dead pixels on my camera I promise)

Best view of the Cathedral I think you'll ever see.
