UK Triton Court, London - February 2015

Recommended Posts

Triton Court is arranged in three buildings, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune Houses, internally these elements are arranged around a full height 9 storey central atrium. The building was originally constructed in 1920 with a major refurbishment and extension taking place in 1984. Currently it is being transformed into the Alphabeta Building, an office development contract worth £36 million. The project will see the transformation of 220,000 sq ft of office space for creative, media and technology occupiers with 22,000 sq ft of additional A1 retail and restaurant space on the ground and basement floors.

I came here with monkey after a busy evening of rooftopping and beers. It was late, the sun was coming up and we were really pissed so we didn't hang around for too long. Cool to see London at that time of day though, can't wait for the summer for more of that. We fancied a bit more time up there so we went back up a little less pissed and a bit earlier this time, Slayaaaa came along for this visit too. Access is a bit bait now so if you fancy a pop at it you'd best be quick, much of the scaff has come down and they've removed the sheets which kept you hidden before. We were spotted by a couple of passers by who just waved at us luckily, apart from that it was plain sailing with a tiny bit of climbing to the top.

      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,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
