The Copperworks

In 1999 Walsall’s James Bridge Copper Works shut down ending the 400 year Copper smelting industry in Walsall. So what happens to a 28 acre concrete jungle with 1km of wall? Thats right it gets painted, on 7/7/2005 Walsall’s very own Mr Vote discovered and painted it for the first time with Nems. The rest is history as developers are about to move in, plenty of the graff thats been painted (If not all) can be found with a quick Flickr search.
