I'm not quite celar why Lichfield road has to be widened. Surely the expressway was built to relieve it of much of its traffic, though I admit that, not living in brum now, I haven't been on it for some time

That's true Mike but the Lichfield Rd is closed so often with accidents the Lichfield Rd just can't cope when this happens.

i have heard that this one is also to be demolished but i will need to get confirmation..either way we are now going to lose this pub which is very well known for all the bands and groups that played there....quite a long report on this one...

The New Adventurer looks like the Chestnut Tree did. Modern and Characterless.
The Aston Social thing should be knocked down as soon as possible.

No volty with the best will in the world, Ancient Drunk doesn't translate into old fashioned boozer.

hi micky i think the bromford has been ear marked for demo for some time now...our pubs are going at a rate of knots now and if they are not pulled down turned into something else...such a shame to see so many go...
