Or more specifically at the rear of it, and do they make your life a misery?
It's the office block at the south east end of Blackfriars Road
and used to be British Telecom. It is now Deutsche Bank's backup site (in case of nuclear or terrorist attack allegedly) although they don't like anyone to know it. It's heavily patrolled, cameras everywhere, dogs and a secure turnstile entrance that recognises fingerprints.
All very mysterious but more importantly, insufferably noisy. They seem to have builders in 24/7 and this evening have fired up a 'portable' generator which is the size of a juggernaut. This makes a noise like a jumbo jet and is directly outside our block of flats. It started at 7.40 this evening and has been going off and on for 30odd minute intervals since (and will probably go on all night).
I have called the Southwark Noise Team (not for the first time) and I have to say they have been brilliant. They've been round twice, agreed that it's monstrous, have had words (and been ignored) but there really is not much they can do bar serve a notice.
So, any ideas of what I can do now would be much appreciated before I burst into tears!
