A historic Black Country former industrial building which dates back to the 1870s is to go under the hammer later this month.
Cottons is selling Kenrick House, in West Bromwich, which housed manufacturer Archibald Kenrick & Sons, famed for producing a broad range of metal products such as pans and buckles.
The building, in Hall Street South, was constructed in 1878 for offices and warehousing and to accommodate the company's growing business which by that time had 700 staff.
The company was owned by the Kenrick family until it was purchased by new owners in 1990 who carried on using the building until March when it moved to new offices.
It has a guide price of up to £250,000 and is well known by people who travel along the M5 and is known as part of the gateway to Sandwell, particularly as a result of its clock tower and spire.
The auction takes place on October 16 at Aston Villa.
