But might be of limited interest here. :) It does lead on to others though.

Its very many years since I have been to Birmingham or any other city that size, looks very modern now. Super quality picture.

Excellent viewing Gibbo, It certainly shows how dense the building has become, and when it did reach an open space it was bordered by a "Building for Birmingham" sign. The canal network looks largely intact if dwarfed by the modernism. Sadly though I had to mute the sound, definitely too energetic a backing track for a serene breeze over the city I thought! :)

Only been once, to see Heather Nova at the Glee Club.
Saw very little as we drove around in circles for ages trying to find it.
Hoped to spot it but the images change too rapidly.
It certainly looks a lot better than the impression I had of it.

My aunty used to live in Edgbaston near fiveways roundabout. I used to go and visit her in school hols. Went again in 1996 for a friend’s birthday who was studying there, then again a couple of years ago.

It seems to get worse with age.

The traffic's gone everything pedestrian or the tram, the boarded up open space is where the HS2 station is going to be once the archaeologists have finished digging.
I always play the videos with the sound off. :-D
The brick paving makers must have made a nice profit.
