Hi All,

Please see below on the Hall at Great Barr.
I'm afraid it's in a terrible state, but there's still plenty to see.
I've cut the pictures down as much as I'd like, but there's still quite a few I'm afraid.

The history of it can be found here:

The actual Hall was in a dire state in 1978 - a prime example of how listing can make matters worse and why preservation should never be in the hands of a committee (10 citizens local and true). I personally think that places like this are better served by tidying up the ruins, reinstating the gardens and parklands and opening those up to the public. Usually the ruins sit well in the landscape and the result is a peaceful island of nature - something lost in the usual '100 new houses' take on areas of land like this.
