It's certainly got a lot of potential.. some mini skyscrapers could go in there..

They have just started some work on the Gigaport site & the new Cinema going to be built next to the new Tesco, so a few things are happening. But things like the Shannon Mill site I find deeply frustrating & drags that part of Walsall into the gutter IMO.

Maybe when some building work started it could get it's own thread

And IMO it's one of the better buildings built in Walsall over the last few years, although it seems to be jinked, with it already formerly been Woolworths & JT Hughes.

But I would say the top of Parks Street (From M&S to the old Woolworths) the best looking part of Walsall IMO

Had a walk yesterday from home down the Wyrley and Essington Canal into Walsall. I'm fairly lucky in terms of the canals by me, but this one is far more of an urban version and shows a lot of the industrial side of the area and the scope for regeneration. A "few" pics nearer to Walsall:

By Birchills bridge and then Walsall locks:




Really like the Smiths Flour Mill building






The Art Gallery and Wharf area. To the right here is where there's meant to be a development for Marsh St/Navigation St.


Premier Inn and Art Gallery


Looking back away from Walsall showing the Light cinema and pub


Bit symptomatic this pic of this area in general. They've done it pretty well but it already needs a little bit of TLC. There's a sunken boat bottom right which was moored up which needs removing (and, to be fair, you can see a few Canal and River trust peeps cleaning/removing rubbish in the below).


The Black Country Arms!
