Where the bus shelters get made

posted in: Observations | 0

Passed by this small engineering works near Cradley Heath station and couldn’t resist taking a snap of a stock of bus shelters (didn’t tag them all though!) A pint of beer to anyone who discovers where the bus stops are made! However the picture shows the older style of bus stops so this might just be a recycling centre so I’d better do a more thorough survey next time I’m out there.

Turners Hill

After months of mapping in the Black Country and avoiding this hill I finally managed to map this (location).

It is the highest point in the West Midlands at 265m and the views from there are very extensive. It is marred by a growth of communications towers of some complicated design. Somehow, whilst taking a photo of the man-made environment I forgot to get some snaps of the views (mapping’s getting to my brain!)
