    strangely enough despite Brumingham only being down the road i have never really bothered with the place as all i think is traffic M6 roadworks chaos misery etc so well and truly missed the boat on the main site here however if you are in the area still worth a quick look!

    strangely enough after a failed attempt at the offices Speed's report popped up so Kudos to that and beware it is still used but no secca and the shared owners were actually quite pleasant and even asked if we were interested in purchasing the building :)
