The fire escape is a stunning example of the spiral staircase designer's art. It's at the opposite end of the building to the access road.

At the described location. Now Buckminster Yard Office Units. Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there, well protected and in good condition.

The building is being extensively restored and not being quite right on the orientation at first, I thought it was a goner, but then found it on the NE end.
