  1. HI there

    Cool pix

    How did you manage to get on the roof? I’ve been photographing this place for ages and haven’t managed it!!

  2. Hi,

    You might not see this message as your post is a few years old now, but I’m trying to find a photo that you may have.

    From one angle, from the roof, you can see one part of Heygate estate which seems to have some of the City skyscrapers and other buildings (including the gherkin) stood on top of it. Do you know anyone who might have a photo like that?

    There’s one such image on Alamy but I’m loathe to pay them when I could pay an individual, or perhaps just give them a credit on my album.

    That image says so much to me: wealth growing out of forced poverty.

    Thanks,

    Matthew.
