Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  

It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.

The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 

There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 

It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 

So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

C

Most of the floors looked alike with nothing worth documenting so we didn't show every floor, but yes this place was covered from bottom to top and back down again and the view at the end is what made it worth it. That and how long it has been sat there and no one has recorded it so had to be done. We are trying to look for some more photogenic places that no one has done. So gonna have to travel as my local area is pretty much done now. Thanks for the comments though!
