Been a while but movement on Great Barr Hall ??

So after a quiet period two interesting pieces of news has appeared. The first is that the land owners – Great Barr Lakes submitted a planning application and got it approved for works to the Lake.

The full link to this application is HERE and this is work I mentioned quite a while back that had to happen to protect not only the land but possible major flooding on Queslett Road.

Then these pictures tweeted to me by Paul Kimble on twitter  @official_kimble of recent work to secure the Hall. Now what is really interesting here is just how secure this is. This is much more than has been done in the past.

So you do wonder what is going on here. Since the original application was basically withdrawn this would not come cheap would it ? What are the future plans now ?
