Disused building in Worcester Street, Kidderminster, Worcs
This large building has suffered vandalism. Many of the windows not boarded up have been broken. The general effect, in my opinion, adds to the run-down feeling that spreads across this part of the town centre. In early 2017 the County Council announced they were planning to improve Worcester Street but there is no sign of anything happening on the ground so far. Hopefully whatever is done here will be better than the "improvements" recently introduced to the area of the old Town Hall. The resultant intermingling of traffic and pedestrians has caused much local controversy, although the local authorities believe it will bring great economic benefit.

The photograph was taken from Oxford Street across the small public open space in this street.
