Radio City Tower / St. Johns Beacon, Liverpool

After hitting the liebherr crane and a couple of rooftops the night before myself and Rookie headed into the packed streets of Liverpool. The Matthew street festival was already in full swing so we figured the best place to view it all was from up here.
 
 
 
Standing at 452ft tall the tower was originally constructed as a ventilation shaft for the nearby St. Johns Market. The top of the tower is largely different from the original idea, back in the 1970s and 1980s the tower featured a revolving restaurant with the rooftop being used as an observation deck.

After making ill profits the tower shut down and remained derelict for over 15 years until renovation into a radio studio in 1999.
