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.

Nice market with every imaginable thing you can buy. There’s a friendly atmosphere too. Wish there’s something like this where I live. Nothing wrong with malls, but markets like this should be preserved as well.
