WME Flickr Focus - February 2018

Hasn't it been cold recently? The so-called 'Beast from the East' is blowing in from Siberia, and here in Wolverhampton it's absolutely freezing. The plummeting temperatures have not deterred the WME Photostream from embarking upon some update action, so let's don our thermals and see what's what...

First out with the snowplough is WME Wolverhampton, making sure Bilston and Bushbury are free from icy obstruction. The resultant arrivals include Bushbury Churchyard (making another archive appearance), Bert Williams Leisure Centre and Bradley Lane Metro stop. And that's not all - Marstons' White Rabbit building site gets some pre-pub attention along with ceramic street signage from Monmore Green, both notably photographed during sunnier conditions!

Wrapping up warm we have WME Staffordshire, shielding itself from the elements through an influx from Burton (Bass breweriana, the Lord Burton Wetherspoons sign, and a prized picture of the Town Hall's Wurlitzer organ). Codsall and Codsall Wood escape the chill courtesy of Moatbrook Lane and St Nicholas Church while the Bratch Locks tollhouse joins a 'replace the chain' notice down near Wombourne.

Next to brave the big freeze are WME Walsall and WME Sandwell. Walsall visits Top Lock at Birchills then takes another look at the Anchor in Brownhills whereas Sandwell accounts for the ornamental lamp outside Blackheath's Shoulder of Mutton. WME Birmingham meanwhile faces the blizzard conditions of Burbury Park by supplying us with a snowy shot of some Newtown/Lozells artwork.

Finally, huddling around the fire we find the lesser-spotted WME Warwickshire which has been busy in Bedworth. The Liberal Club and the local market have both taken their places by the hearth, joined by WME Dudley's solitary February submission in the form of the Briar Rose sculpture at Brierley Hill. That completes this sub-zero summary, fingers crossed for milder weather in March!
