    Thanks goes out to Bubblehead for mentioning this to me, I still can't believe it was standing here, unexplored for years! It's snuck under the radar!!

    Since I visited, the site has now been totally sealed, newer PIR sensors have been installed and security patrols have been seen by residents close by. There is also Asbestos removal cabins/showers in the compound so it looks as though they are starting to strip it.

    Built in 1820, it became the home of George Cadbury and his wife Elizabeth in 1894.

    George Cadbury lived at the Manor House until his death in 1922.

    The building was given to The University of Birmingham in 1952 but sold in 2007. It looks like it was used as halls of residence and function rooms.

    George Cadbury gave the Orthopedic Hospital & the Lickey Hills to the people of Birmingham, he set up the Cadbury schools, gave money to set up pensions for his workers at Bournville and built the Bournville Village Trust - the houses with their gardens.

    A shame that the building isn't listed, god only knows what kind of housing monstrosity it might turn into!

    BTW, if you don't like being followed by PIR activated CCTV, this isn't the site for you!!
