Visited with a non-member.

Had been eyeing this little crane up every since it went up a week ago, and thought it was time to just do it. Certainly not the highest of cranes, but still worth the climb.

The crane is situated on the old Bristol Gas Works site at Canon Marsh in Bristol. That building has sat roofless and empty for longer than I have been alive, so good to see something is now happening with the site!

On with some shots.

Nice pics from up there mate.
Well done for doing it.
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.

I've got the brain of a four year old. I'll bet he was glad to be rid of it.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Rather you than me. I struggle leaving the ground. Nice night shots

Can you just make the title a little bit less precise mate? Thanks :)

Brings back a few memories seeing the view from up there in those pictures. Well done lads.

Ps. Sad reflection of the changing times in urbex when a crane job is only worth half a dozen replies, whilst a crusty piece of wallpaper can drag on for a few pages.

Nice one guys, it's the worry of getting caught that often prevents me, not any type of fear of the actual climb...

That's exactly what it it's about. If you do get caught, and as long they only have the fact you were there to try and prosecute you for, chances are a court won't hear it. It was the nice cop, cup of tea and waving a get out of jail early form that got me.
