In the leafy suburbs of Birmingham, BBC Pebble Mill has been a landmark since the 1970's when it was opened by HRH Princess Anne.

Pebble Mill

The BBC site has eight floors of offices, TV and Radio studios, two canteens, a post room, a lovely well kept garden and two car parks.

Throughout the building are remnants of vintage recording and editing equipment unused as BBC Birmingham enters the digital age of technology.

Views from Pebble Mill ...

A view from Pebble Mill

Views across Birmingham from Pebble Mill are breathtaking, especially the golden sunsets at the end of a summers day.

Nick Owen, Midlands Today Presenter says: "I will miss the rural feel of Pebble Mill, there's lots of greenery and trees with Cannon Hill park, and the nature centre right next door.

There are fabulous views across Birmingham city centre from the 7th floor canteen, it's that general rural feel that I'll miss in the city centre."
