SO8376 : Crown House (1), Bull Ring, Kidderminster

Crown House (1), Bull Ring, Kidderminster
Crown House (1), Bull Ring, Kidderminster
This eight storey concrete clad building dates from 1971 and was built to house government departments. The Inland Revenue were here for many years and the two storey part was occupied by the Post Office who have now relocated this branch. Perhaps not surprisingly this building has been voted one of Britain's "most hated", and locally it is not very popular either. But it is very much of its time so there are some people who feel it should be preserved. The Council however propose to demolish it to aid redevelopment of this area. But we have been here before and currently part of it is still occupied and the rest has to let notices displayed.
