I am guessing somewhere in Digbeth?



Well, the BT Tower is in the background, so I am guessing the JQ somewhere - Key Hill maybe?

Hmm - you got me wondering. Top one - near Aston Science Park? Not far from the railway arches?

The ramp isn't by Edgbaston reservoir is it? Tower Ballroom?

Nope, it's not an underpass, it's on a building, but it is close to Bristol St

That's easy - just by the Malthouse pub is it not?

Thanks Mahill - just a lucky guess though - it could be virtually any council flat...

Yep, it's on the bridge that you cross as you walk down from St Pauls heading up to the foot bridge over Great Charles St.
