Everytime I walked past this place I watched the gradual progress of the scaffolding, back in the summer fellow explorer Morse had popped up so we went for a look ourselves. Last time the observatory was locked, luckily this time it was open!
As we sat and chilled on the roof three dark figures climbed our up our access ladder, security can’t be this ballsy?
Lying behind a small wall it appeared that one of the guys had a tripod strapped to his back. After an awkward moment to see whether we were seeing correctly we were soon into introductions, it turned out these were the same guys that had been climbing and busting the cranes in Chester city centre in 2009.
Some more return visits below!
