n classic Harry style; this forms part of another explore backlog! I visited here in November 2018 with Mookster. It formed part of a little Midland Roadtrip we did that day.

We all know what to expect with this place; its pretty pillaged now, access was a doddle and it was full of other explorers; something which seems to be a much more frequent occurrence these days!

We met some really nice people here and had a relaxed half hour or so before moving to the next site.

The Typhoo Tea Factory, founded by John Summer in 1903 and was known a local landmark in Birmingham.

Tea production began here in the 30's; and survived bombing by the Luftwaffe in WW2. in 1968; Typhoo merged with Schweppes and with Cadbury the following year, forming Cadbury-Schweppes.

The factory eventually closed in 1978 as a tea making facility; but remained open as a clothes warehouse until around 2008.

The grounds, which are currently being used as a 148-space pay and display car park (very handy for exploring!), have been granted planning permission as part of a £14 million project to turn the site into a brand new university campus for the Birmingham City University.

I believe this was the building the youtubers TGF did for a hide and seek challenge, caused a riot with thousands of teenagers swarming the place
