Went for a trip down memory lane in here. Wandered round and it's still full of stall upon stall stacked with every range of material you can think of. Have a focus in mind when you go here, else you'll be overwhelmed.

Close to the huge BIRMINGHAM indoor market this area is almost exclusively clothing and materials. Interesting to see and you may even buy something ! Both indoor and outdoor stalls even in winter.

Not sure what I was expecting, but turned out to be a typical market area albeit very established stalls with a lot of stock. Plenty of stalls selling material although somewhat old fashioned materials. Worth a wander through but we didn’t stay long.
