Back To Back Houses

Hurst Street, Birmingham

Built in the 1840s, These back to back houses have been preserved by the national trust so that visitors can discover what it would have been like to live in a back to back court.

Our story, worlds apart together is set in a back to back house in an industrialised area so to be able to experience being in one was brilliant.
