Newtown woes

Posted by blackadder on 3 June 2008 in English (English)

Had just enough time before dark last night to knock off another small quadrant of Birmingham in the Newtown/Lozells area. It has to be one of the most deprived areas of the city. Most of the roads were bounded by derelict flats. I saw one murder location (Nehemiah Bryce in New Croft) and one couple sleeping in a tent in an open garage a short distance away in Rodway Close. Needless to say I'm glad I've reduced the remaining area to be mapped somewhat although I'm saddened that we have areas of our great city that clearly need so much TLC, to improve the area, to make it safer and to offer something to those that live in it. Thankfully the guys playing 5 a-side footy at the leisure centre nearby had something positive to shout about, perhaps all is not lost.
