Friday

Surprise, surprise, for this week’s Friday Photo I chose a buildingĀ in Sutton Coldfield, which has been the location of many of my photos. Located on the Birmingham Road, this pretty sixteenth-century building is now used as a antiques house, and was originally built by Bishop John Vesey, who funded many properties in the area. The property was originally two stone cottages, but has since gone through some alterations such as the addition of modern bay windows. Many people pass this building on their way to work, to school or while shopping, and perhaps don’t even realise that it is one of the oldest buildings in the area. See if you can spot next time you’re in Sutton.
