    Raddog spotted this a few weeks back and the sound of a tower was too tempting to pass up. I'm not sure if the building was originally built as a factory, but it was used as the Birmingham and District CWS (CO-OPerative Wholesale Sociotey) Weights and Scales Division, also being the head office for tills etc. Very well boarded apart from 1 clowns pocket!!

    inside was very intact, if not a little modern in parts. The tower was fantastic, 3 ladders up to the top floor, and then an external ladder to the top of the water tank. I was told to wait until dark to do the last ladder:rolleyes: , but he was prob right, there was a police helecopter overhead!!

    The real gem of this site was the basement. It was full of really old scales, weights, tills and cigarette machines, along with various other CO-OP ephemera. Great place in general!
