Cumberland House, Broad Street, Birmingham

Visited with Adders0121 and Bubblehead

History on the place is quite scarce

Cumberland House 64 metres (210 ft) 1963-4 18 Complete (Redevelopment planned)
Research and a few signs littered around the building shows previous tennants such as, DSA, Inland Revenue, DEFRA, BCC, VOSA and possibly a few others. Mainly a government building by the looks of things. Marked for redevelopment, work was suppose to start in 2008 and finish 2010, however no such work has started, and a couple of bars and clubs still exist in the lower complex.

17 Floors of open plan office space, and a couple of floors worth of partioned offices is not very exciting. Completely stripped except for a few chairs, and the odd table, we headed straight for the roof.

Disco Explorers Attended: Adders, Bubblehead & God


Whilst on a recce to crack an explore we stumbled upon an access to somewhere unknown and at the time exciting. Like a moth to a flame we were in. Turns out we were in the bar formally known to some as Brannigans, to the rest of us “a whore house on Broad Street.â€￾ Judging by the ladies clothes littered around, the rest of us were not wrong in our assumptions! Finding nothing of potential interest, apart from a cardboard coffin and Bubblehead’s giant bauble, disco fever took us over, and we became...
