We have been aware for some time that Great Barr Hall has been up for sale and it seems we have two pieces of news
the first comes from a favourite blog of mine – The Ruin of Great Barr Hall – LINK and a comment from Martin
They just sold it by auction barnard marcus auction, however it was sold before the auction date for an undisclosed sum.
i bet it was given to the council they always let the buildings drop to bits just like duncraig castle plockton
When I checked the auctioneers site I then can see it was indeed sold as Martin said
Then on the Pheasey Labour blog – LINK someone has posted this
My wife and I went for a walk over to Great Barr Hall and we were informed by the security guard that the Hall with all the land has now been sold to a consortium of 10 Asians for £1million, to which 1 of them owns a steel works in Smethwick and that we were trespassing, He also told us that the Hall was going to be pulled down and that a building 5 times bigger will be built there to replace it. We were told that a 10 foot fence is going to be erected all around the site to keep people out. Does anyone know how true this is?
So we need to get as much information as possible and quickly, anyone with further information please contact this blog.
