    Arrow Alfred J Parker Ltd, Armoury Works, Birmingham, Jan 2013


    A couple of years ago this place reeked with epicness. Unfortuanely all the good shit has gone, but after narrowly putting my tripod legs through a rotten floor I found ther odd nibblet of interest knocking still around. As always with these sites, wish I'd got here sooner.



    Parker Hale Ltd. was a United Kingdom firearms, air rifle and firearms accessory manufacturer, located in the Gun Quarter of the city of Birmingham, England. It was originally founded by A. G. Parker and Arthur Hale. Parker-Hale Limited began manufacturing high quality precision shooting accessories in the heart of the gun-making quarter in the year 1880. The founder, A.G. Parker, was a well-known rifleman of the 1st Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment and recognised the need for the supply of shooting aids to his fellow shooters.

    Flannelette!!! Ha ha! We used to stick a great wad of that stuff into our pockets cos it was great for a "final wipe" in the field when your rat pack issued bog roll ran low.

    Nice explore though it's a messy site and no mistake.

    Another casualty of the government's ban anything to do with shooting policy so that only the criminals will be able to get guns.

    Oops.... politiccing... shuttup me! ;)
