You're looking at Sheepcote Street (behind Broad Street, next to Brindleyplace). We too had embarrassingly little idea what was hiding in this unprepossessing corner of Brum. Originally designed as stabling for horses, the Grade II listed horseshoe shaped building used to be integral to our ‘city of 1,000 trades’. Under appreciated for too long, the 360 degree piece of history will be restored over the coming years — and before it is — you can get inside, care of an Un-Tour. Visitors are being invited to search the building for clues to find out the secrets of its history with local performance poets helping groups to piece together the stories they uncover on their way. Running on very limited dates in July and August, tickets are £8.20.
