Heya. First Post here, and I hope this doesnt offend any serious sky scraper fans on here, don't know if this is against ethics or not.

Here are some pictures that I took a while back of the tower, myself and a friend of mine explored the tower block, and were truly amazed by the immense views, being a midlander myself, I am always awestruck by the large scale of the London skyline.

anywho, here are the pictures, hope you enjoy.

p.s. All photo's are copyright to myself, if anyone wishes to use the pictures for anything other than this, then please contact myself via PM.

Nice building but it won't contribute very much to the "skyline"

Great pics mate! You should have lots of nice towers to climb soon, 122 Leadenhall is well into demolition, and Heron and Bishopsgate have just started too, so in a couple of years you should be able to get the best views anyone has ever had of London before they are complete and anyone else gets a chance, just make sure you take some pics! Oh, and be careful, we need them photos

It actually can be seen from many vantage points & is quite prominent from many views.

Cheers guys.

London Lad, its not "strictly" illegal but I guess its going to be frowned upon by most.

Thanks for the comments, I'll be getting more pictures from high building sites around the country as and when, and will post them before any official pictures are given.
