^^They look like mobile cranes to me GShutty :) I only count tower cranes
Fair enough, that’s really why I didn’t report them earlier, but this said they’ve been permanently erected and in place for about 3months, so surely they’ve made the grade now?! Your shout, They’ve probably run out of tower cranes again :lol:

Sorry I meant to say thank you for taking the picture earlier as well. I’ve just re read my post and was shocked at how rude I sound.

The only reason for not counting cranes like this is consistency. Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham forumers all do crane counts for their respective cities and they too only count tower cranes. It’s just about keeping a level playing field, really.

Cranes like these really are a grey area between tower cranes and mobile cranes

Brick cladding now being applied: It was taken through a red mesh gate, but this gives a reasonable impression of the colour, which should look good IMHO: :cheers:

A better view of the static crane for VDB, to see if it/both can make the list and push us towards 75 cranes :nuts: :lol:
