Much Maligned Birmingham

I’ve decided that Birmingham gets a bad rap. This last weekend Helen and I spent the weekend there, ostensibly  to visit our younger son who is studying at university there but also as a chance to spend a weekend away. And Birmingham is really not as bad as people make out. In fact it is quite attractive in an urban sort of way.

To prove it here is a selection of photos that I took around the town including the canal area and the stunning new library building, though quite who thought building a library in the age of the ebook was a good idea I’m not sure.
