  1. Here follows a tale of derring-do unlike any other in my history... The Central Hydraulic Tower in Birkenhead was a Hydraulic Accumulator station situated in the docks, it ceased operating many moons ago and the plan is eventually to turn it into a hotel. The inside was the biggest death trap I had ever visited until I saw Grands Moulins de Paris mill. Most of the staircases were rotten with planks of wood the only way across. The ladders up to the top were unstable to say the least, most of them secured with blue twine. And the ladder up to the roof was barely a ladder, 3 missing steps and a half broken side, and it didn't even line up with the roof hatch. And we did this on a night it was blowing a gale. A major rush but looking back, so bloody dangerous. Excuse the shoddy exterior and interior photos, it's fair to say I wasn't entirely focused on getting composed shots inside... A year or so ago a group of kids got stranded at the top with the fire service having to rescue them, after this the interior was pretty much stripped out of everything.
