Last week, we were given access to the rooftop of the earliest block – the Cromwell Tower. This highrise was completed in 1973, and soars 123 metres into the City skies. Clambering over elevator machinery and antiquated switch gear, we stumbled out onto the roof, just above the multimillion pound penthouses 42 storeys up.
The view, as you’d expect, is magnificent, with closeups of the ever-changing City skyline, panoramas of the Northern Heights and south to Crystal Palace, and teasing glimpses of the Thames, snaking through the urban sprawl.
