    Whilst searching for a way into Alfred J. Parker's gun shop we came across this petrol station down some back streets in Highgate, Sparkbrook. The entire street seems pretty run-down, there is a whole row of abandoned shops across the road which we had a little look at too.

    Not as abandoned as you think. Vale Onslow may look derelict but is in fact still trading despite the shabby chic appearance of their premises!

    That's quite surprising, we looked inside and it was just full of junk haha. Cool buildings though

    I really like your style Metzgermeisterr! Ok, so its no George Barnsley, but it is really good to see something new and also something that many others would pass without a second glance. :thumb

    Thanks, I think it's always worth a look if it's easy to get into. It makes for some good photos anyway! It's a nice change from the usual industrial sites at least

    @GRONK No all that's there is just that main building frame. The shop had completely gone and all.

    @GRONK lol you people know me to well. Anyways checked out your other posts @Metzgermeisterr and like that salt or ash place whatever it was. Could be interesting also the gun place with cases in. That's interesting also. Bit empty now but the fact your having a go at a good few places is decent. And with that enthusiasm gold finds won't be far away. Keep it up.
