    Fort Dunlop, Birmingham

    Well I've worked here for a good few months now but not had chance to get any pictures of the place up.

    I took a couple today when on my lunch break, there nothing special but i thought i'd show you any way (it's the big building by the side of the M6 between J6 & J7 near the jaguar factory)



    Front of the building but i was very close



    Car Park



    The office



    A few of the roof








    Through the binocular thingy's looking at the brand new jags









    This runs from the very bottom floor and right to the top, it's 8 very high floors, the glass runs over the top and you can see all the way down to the bottom. It's great for girls in skirts
