Car Thieves are active in this area - warning sign on Banbury Street

I'd previously been at the other end of Banbury Street earlier in the year when I took shots of the former Eagle & Tun pub. I had no idea back then that a Grade II* listed building was at the end of the road.

 

I checked beforehand on Heritage Gateway for any Grade II* listed buildings in Digbeth and the Birmingham Gun Barrel Proof House came up.

 

For a Sunday morning there was no one here, might also be due to it's location, other side of the railway line.

 

Quite regularly down here I head trains passing by loudly.

 

Obviously this place was built before the railway line existed (but probably after the local canal was built).

 

Near here is Proof House Junction (on both the railway line and canal).

 

A warning sign on Banbury Street, warning you that car thieves are active in this area. From the West Midlands Police.
