    Report - Methodist church central hall - Birmingham - March/24

    This place has been featured on this site multiple times before but the latest report I can find on it was in 2018. I thought I would give it a write up despite my sub-par camera as an update as the building has undergone some changes in the last 6 years. History (Shameless wikipedia copy...

    Report - Argyle Works, Birmingham - April 2023

    (as of 29/04/23) Argyle Works in Birmingham is an abandoned 19th century factory. There isn't an awful lot I could find about its history sadly. I'm sure there's a lot behind this place. The access for this place is fairly obvious and if you're on the larger side you may have a very tight...

    Report - Waterstones, Birmingham. 2014

    Waterstones, Birmingham. In 2014 we gained access to the roof of Waterstones in Birmingham city centre. Art-Deco architecture became popular in the design of cinemas, however, it was not so widespread in other buildings and its use was very limited in Birmingham. In 1933, the new Kent Street...

    Report - Bagot Arms 15/08/20

    I was on my way to see a lady about some ornaments I was collecting when I was at the bus stop over the road waiting to change buses to get over to hers. Fortunately she was real diamond and didn't mind me going later than planed. I have drank in this pub before but I don't usually go down that...

    Report - Selly Oak Telephone Exchange (April 2019)

    Well, here goes my first report on this website! I hope you enjoy! Speed did a report on this place back in 2011 so I decided the forum needed a little update since it's... lets just say "considerably" more rundown now than it looked back then. Despite it being fairly barren it is undoubtedly a...
