January 18th -Whatever happens, Brownhills is always in my heart. The old place has it’s problems – like those of any post industrial town – but I love the canals, the open spaces, the countryside and the frontier feel of a town on the fringe between the West Midlands Conurbation and the rolling countryside of South Staffordshire.
On a cold, clear evening, returning from errands I came along the canal at Silver Street and over the bridge.
I love the Peter Saville efeect of the railings on that bridge, and the great views from it. But I also love the friendly feel of the new housing and occasional moored boat.
I take photos here lots… but it’s so photogenic at night. I love this place with all of my heart.
