    Well what can I say, if this was being posted up a month ago it may have been on a par with Parker or Jabez Cliff, sadly I was too late. Years of waiting and I took my eye off the ball at the wrong moment. As it happens I'll have to show you what I did get to see...

    Funny place this, they cast all manner of things in brass and bronze. There were some very interesting anchor patterns lying about. They also made shooting sticks which tied it into the Walsall leather trade.

    Under demo with a row of Georgian houses which had been put to use as leather works (another for that book I must write one day!) and a public house.

    There are some extremely old industrial buildings on this site, a pity a few could not be put to another use, but that's Walsall through and through...
