I spotted this derelict building on the walk back to my hotel from Birmingham city centre yesterday evening and decided to return to take some photos of it before breakfast this morning. It??s a handsome building (Victorian I presume) with lots of lovely architectural details but it evidently hasn??t been used for quite some time and is now looking very neglected. The early morning sunshine gave the building a warm glow and it made a lovely contrast against the pure blue sky.

      Wonderful angle and great find. It's so sad that the building has been neglected. It has a lot of character. Maybe you could turn it into a bed and breakfast.

      Interesting angle - shame they don't reuse these buildings rather than building the cardboard boxes they put up these days
