This was a great visit, apart from the fact I had a really bad cold!

22 flights of stairs climbed and we finally were at the top... I almost died there and then through coughing!

There wasn't much of interest in the actual tower itself as it was pretty stripped out, but the views from the roof were brilliant.

Dalton Tower was a halls-of-residence for students studying at Aston University. It was built in 1970 along with Lawrence and Stafford Towers. In May 2011 Dalton Tower, along with Lawrence Tower, were demolished to make way for new buildings.

On with my photos...

Lawrence Tower's to the left in this photo.

Just after I'd taken the photo above, a police car pulled up outside the university building. It was funny to see them, but we were crossing our fingers they didn't look up and see us!

There were more places to take photos from, but myself and one other had a train to catch so unfortunately had to leave before we got the chance.

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks, both!

'twas! They'd even spraypainted how many flights of stairs there were so you could see how much further you had to struggle/how many stairs you had to leg it down (ie number 1 when you got up the first flight, 2 when you reached the top of the second flight etc).

One thing that still puzzles me is, what students who lived on the top floor did when they got home really drunk after a night out and the lifts were broken..that's a lot of stairs to navigate when you're hammered! Mind you, you'd sober up fairly quick!

It's a nightmare! Well worth it when you have views like that, though :)

Unfortunately, I don't have anymore as the view was fairly restricted where I was. I would've moved about to get other views but ran out of time.
