Despite living in Northampton for some time, I’ve never actually been up close to the lift tower. Well, that changed last week, when I had some time to kill, so drove into the estate to have a look.
Its quite breathtaking really, standing at the bottom of the thing! Its a shame that there’s no information about it though. I had to turn to its wikipedia entry for help.
If you’re local and never been there, its worth a quick 5 minute diversion next time you are driving by.
Shame we can’t go to the top though. We have to make do with pictures from the top instead..
