leeds international pool, leeds. june 09

Here is what we went all the way over to leeds for, as it was going to be demolished soon (been done at the moment). we got in to the roof and was walking around the roof for 20 mins trying to find a way down! when we finally did it was worth it but its a bit of a mess now!

from top of the diving board, shows the size of the place

looking back at the diving boards with Over doing some pull ups!

some graffiti that was up on the wall at the back of the place
Over standing on a wall, im sure he didnt need to stand on the Wall to get the picture he wanted! he just wanted to stand on the wall!!!!

and finally the excitement got to much for Over.

timble beck culvert, leeds. june 09

last place before we hit leeds pool, not many pics but not a bad culvert. we did scare a mother duck and ducklings, and some of the ducklings got stuck in the currents of the water and swept off, which we chased down and saved, then returned to there mother!

here are some of the pics!

most off the culvert was like the above, in parts the walk way was wider the some streets

sealed off grids

the above pic was my favorite bit of the culvert! holy grail, death or tigers? which would you choose???

Park Plaza hotel, leeds. june 09

after doing the queens hotel we walked across the road to park plaza hotel and it was just as strange at first, we got in the lift with a member of staff who was asking about are trip and "what we are getting up to? anything interesting?" we said "hope so!" what made me smile was her parting words of "have fun!"

this was alot higher then the hotel across the road, which gave some great views!

here is a couple of Over on the roof, its not as dangerous as it looks! those girders don't go past the edge of the building!

and as ever a rooftop pano

Queens hotel, leeds. june 09

long due an update, not that ive been doing nowt just not putting on here! went over to leeds with Over in june to have a look at the international baths, but as there was workers in there at the time we went we decided to keep are selfs busy till 5 o'clock!

first up was the Queens hotel in the city centre, walking through the lobby to the lift was a bit nervy as it was a bit posh for us 2! :)

the strangest thing happened when we got on to the roof with was done comically, we had been on the roof for 1 min and some guy comes from around the back of an air vent he was working on and just looked at us then made a phone call next to us then went back to work! but i got a pic!

looking down at the bus station

the next hit, park plaza!
