I was recently invited to take some photographs from the very top of Derbys Guildhall Theatre on the Scaffolding that currently surrounds the clock tower.

Here is some time-lapse footage I took from the very top next to the dome.
Its about 82 foot (25 meters) from the ground. It was very strange on the way up to the top level of Scaffolding as we passed the clock faces, these are huge things when you are up close. You can clearly see the minute hand moving around.

You may see yourself in this if you walked past Walkabout bar between 2:22pm and 2:30pm on Friday 8th Feb.

The photos at 02:19 are taken from postcard views from the early 1900s.

Derby Guildhall was designed in 1842 by Henry Duesbury. It is currently getting a Β£150,000 makeover to bring it back to its former glory. This is a 5 month project to repair the front of the Grade II-listed building, It should be complete in June 2008.

I will soon be adding another video (not time-lapse) that I took from up here so keep an eye out for that one.
I took several 360x180 degree VR images which are here : http://derbyphotoscouk.blogspot.co.uk...

Its VERY high up there, thankfully it was a nice calm sunny day!
I would like to thank Richard Grant and his team for allowing me access.

The Guildhall Theatre is located on the Market Place in the centre of Derby City, provides a blend of professional touring theatre and music events, as well as offering a venue for many amateur productions and is perfect for small meetings and exhibitions. It has its own website :
