TRUE BRUMMIE MODERATOR
agree with you again phil..have to say i also fear for spring hill library..main reason being that its only a stones throw away from the new library in town...
JohnNechells Green was and always was known to be the junctions of Rocky Lane, Nechells Park Road, Charles Arthur Street, Thimblemill Lane,Bloomsbury Street, and Nechells Place.
Makes interesting reading..Lyn
I called in there myself a few months back when I heard about the trouble with the front entrance because I had my suspicions then that they were waiting for what I considered to be a minor repair job to escalate into something else. Though this problem with the heating a plumbing gave them just the excuse they were looking for. I know these wonderful old buildings don't get the use that they were built for and I don't expect the Council to keep funding them when they are not being used. Though like swimming baths I remember when schools used to take each class for a weekly visit to the library and we were encouraged to use them as much as possible in our own time.
Perhaps if schemes like this were in place today our public amenities would get more use
