It looks like there are two cranes at Arden Court which have been forgotten for the count.

There are no cranes at Arden Gate Ralph, the two that you can see (Probably from Metrogogo Bank 2 Photo) are for x 1 Bishopgate Street Student Block and x 1 Bath Court Student Block.

All x 3 developments are next to each other so it is easy to get them confused, hope that has cleared that up for you.

Nice and mild outside today Ralph, great day to get them cobwebs blown away and have a nice stroll, even to take some piccies

I know X. What a pity that I dropped my camera and it smashed in to millions of little pieces and all of those pieces then smashed in to millions of little pieces etc etc.


X, I shall just have to wait for YOU to do a comprehensive update of ALL the current sites AS WELL AS the sites awaiting a start and post them on the forum later TODAY.


You lucky devil X.

Crane going up for the Student block in Southside.

Also the view of all the cranes on Birmingham CC Skyline is now really impressive from that vantage point which has been demolished next to the BullRing Trading estate, quick lads get up there before we have a 100metre tower blocking the view for another 100 years.

Cheers, Sefton. I think Shirley is a bit too far out to be included though as it's not within the 2.5 mile range.
