here is the big building was the inspiration for some of Orwell’s 1984 seen from BT Tower. It’s Senate House (see link for details on the 1984 connection
Battersea Powerstation was featured in a film version of 1984, and here it is also seen from BT Tower
this photo is quite dense so is worth clicking for the big version. it’s a shame about the hazy day, but you can make out St Paul’s Cathedral, Natwest Tower, the Gherkin and the Docklands in the distance
here are the three tower i photoed from ground level (here) . I was standing near the top of the fourth tower in case you were wondering !
the queen opened the new BBC building yesterday

i was fortunate enough to have another trip up BT Tower yesterday. i took my ‘big camera’.
i was really pleased with the detail on some of the photos, but they are too big to post i’m afraid – so you can have the usual shrinky dink versions.
plenty more photos to come over the next ages.
