Of course there is, just remembered a video I've seen a while ago.

Ah yes. It's a good job actually, though I would be interested to see what it was like originally. The red building beside it that you refer to is also a nice piece adjacent to it.

I'd be interested to go there some time for the experience. Looks like a great vantage point.

Thanks mate! The infrastructure does manage to fit into the city I think without standing out like a sore thumb.

Love your pictures of Lower Marsh and the Southbank! I used to live behind Waterloo station as a child, so Lower Marsh was like my local high street, lol. Brings back very fond memories. Shame me and my family moved away though!
