Don't let this building fall into zombie hands


Constructed in 1972 as subsidized apartments, Samborne Towers spent most of its existence as an undistinguished highrise. After the outbreak began it became notable for its mobilized tenants, many of whom were of Middle Eastern and Eastern European origin, and most of which unwilling to leave their homes. After the events of the Second Big Bash, the building was abandoned, its multilingual grafitti a stark reminder of the people that once called it home.

Samborne Towers consists of two linked towers, each eighteen stories in height. The south tower(Building A) contains the main entrance which leads to Mays Way as well as underground parking access. The north tower (Building A) is topped by a mobile phone tower and its ground level contained several commercial units. The immediate neighbourhood includes a fire hall, a railway station, two police buildings, a factory, and a cheap hotel frequented by footballers and students; residents can at least claim that since the Outbreak things have grown quieter.

Barricade Policy

According to the Dartside Barricade Plan this building should be barricaded at EHB.

December 31 Radio Tower is working, but no messages are broadcasting. Tune to 26.25 MHz for future broadcasts.

December 26 The danger level of Dartside is rising and no one can pretend that this place will survive forever. Many people have gone across the street to Dunford fire station so they wont be ready if the zeds just skip over the FS and come strait to us. Still, I fell this is the safest place in Dartside. If you are looking for a safe house, come on in. The FS beside us is the entrance point. --Wolfe Ellis 02:14, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

December 24, 2009: Christmas Eve. All was well when I left. There were many zombies outside but the survivors inside had enough to survive hundreds of zeds. The building is still EHB but I don't think the transmitter tower is working. Over all this building is pretty safe. --Wolfe Ellis 04:47, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

November 2009 Six survivors inside. Barricaded and powered. --RoyKirk 17:10, 6 November 2009 (BST)

September 2009 One zed inside and Two outside. Not barricade and no power. The building it's ruined. --RoyKirk 13:50, 17 September 2009 (BST)
