WME Flickr Focus - March 2017

Time ticks along and before you know it another month is almost done and dusted. March has gone about its business quietly and efficiently, stacking up a solid selection of updates for the West Midlands Exploration photostream - bring on those bullet points...
  • Top of the pile for a change is WME Sandwell which reawakens from some extended winter slumbers by stopping off at Hill Top. The New Talbot and the Dovecote therefore join my pub picture archive, both photos having been taken during the Golds Hill Good Friday outing last year.
  • WME Dudley has gone to Gornal where an evening shot of the Jolly Crispin becomes just the latest offering in a now-established sequence. Staying in Upper Gornal, the pub sign for the Mill on Windmill Street is evidence of Holden's centenary rebranding, something also on show at the Park Inn brewery tap in Woodsetton.
  • We haven't finished with Dudley just yet as Stourbridge sneaks in with some Green Duck sightings from Rufford Road - it's always fun to see what ale delights await behind the inconspicuous green door of the Badelynge Bar. 
  • WME Birmingham meanwhile has fashioned together items from Erdington (the Red Lion clock plus the Royal Oak over the road), Hall Green (bovine portraiture on display outside the Bulls Head) and Hawkesley (the Shannon, scene of a memorable Hub Marketing pint).
  • Canals are to the fore where WME Warwickshire and WME Staffordshire are concerned. The former collects some Grand Union additions (Cape Locks and Leamington's Bridge 41) whereas the latter contemplates the ostentatiousness of Drayton Foot Bridge, a folly-like feature near Fazeley. Halfpenny Green makes its Staffordshire debut too, aided and abetted by glimpses of Wolverhampton Airport and the local craft centre.
  • There is Ellesmere action to report from WME Shropshire (the Market Hall and the Mere both feature), WME Solihull makes the acquaintance of the Chelmsley Wood Bingo which just leaves dear old WME Worcestershire waiting at a bus stop down in Hopwood near Alvechurch.
No doubt April will come and go just as quickly as March did, hopefully with some worthy further additions along the way. Until then, enjoy the photos...
