    It's a very fine line. I'd love to bring all that stuff home with me, but if you get caught and searched, instant trouble. It turns from trespass to theft..........Totally criminal what happens to these records!!!

    Yeah I've heard bits and pieces about it being haunted. Would have loved to have visited this place but it was flattened way before I got into exploring And the paperwork shots I've seen from here have looked almost drool-worthy, such a pity they were torn down with the rest!

    Thanks to a contact on Birmingham History Forums for the following old shots of the Baterry. Looked like it was a hell of a site even after the first rounds of demolition........
