great barr hall | lunar eclipse

In 2003 the Hall was sold to Cyril Smith of the Manor Building Preservation Trust. Seen as the white knights of Great Barr, being more sympathetic to the cause than Bovis, after a couple of years of inactivity and some rather odd planning applications, it was believed that the only reason Smith had purchased the site was to build two executive homes on the lakeside for himself and leave it at that.

Planning permission refused.
