The Water Margin, Chinese Restaurant, on A5 between Cannock and Brownhills, which has been closed for several months, is built on the site of a former 16th century Inn, called the Fleur de Lys, which was destroyed by fire in the 1940’s. The Water Margin has also been destroyed by arson in August 2011.
Not a lot of information about this place, we passed it on the way to another explore and it enticed us in. An excellent little place.
On August Bank Holiday 2008 Mr Foster killed his wife and 15-year-old daughter before setting fire to their home at Maesbrook, near Oswestry, and killing himself. The multi million £ mansion has been left derelict since the police finished with it. We understand that the images below may offend and upset some people, however after much deliberation we have decided to display them. We feel the history of this house is just as important to be shown as another other of our explores. Any serious concerns please email the webmaster at Webmaster@ukurbex.co.uk Photos By Chris Mitchell
