Tyburn Road Bus Works

I would to thank publicly the site foreman for all his help for yesterday, I now have photos and video of the inside of the former works as well as the outside, if you are pondering why I have not posted them this is because I do like to have control over my photos, I will in due course be sending a few of them out to the usual edtors for publication, (bammot Ominibus, buses, ect ect )

I think that the saving of the Coat of Arms needs a bigger public view of the problem, what it needs is someone to e-mail the Evening Mail and (dispatch), the BBC, ITV, and any I have missed out, it would be a shame for the Coat of Arms to go on the missing list because the public were not told ,

To get the Coat of Arms safely onto the floor is set to be very expensive,

They have found what may have been bricks from a cottage? underneath the floor of the former works,

I wonder what was there before the Bus garage? These bricks were found under where the Boiler House was.

I've got Jack Dromey, MP for Erdington on the case about the Coat of Arms. He is going to write to Colliers to ask them what they are doing about saving it?

The Coat of Arms is looking much cleaner now after all the rain:fat:

I have good news... The Birmingham coat of arms is going to be taken down safely. A stonemason is being brought in to take it down in segments. It should take 2 to 3 days and must be done by the 19th October because the wall will be coming down that weekend.
I have campaigned for years to save it and that day is nearly here. I pray for no mishaps

I have just downloaded this photo from the "Britain from Above" website, and have been looking at all puzzled, thinking that it doesn't look right, wondering if there was a building on there before they built the works, another factory, just because it sit too far off Tyburn Road....., then the penny dropped, its pre dual carriageway.....if my brains were tnt, there wouldn't be enough to blow my hat off....
