Always went to Castle Bromwich Hall gardens to pick a bunch of Bluebells for Mom.
Do you remember the annual Castle Bromwich Show. A small event but really good where
everyone seemed to go. Great times.
Take care
Gerald.

My Wife who lived on Kingshurst remembers picking Bluebells in Chelmsley woods, few years before all the housing began.

I've learnt something tonight, did you know that Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor lived in Hawthorne Road when he was a kid. I must have walked passed his house hundreds of times.

Great picture of the post office. I don't remember it. Looks like a Cruik beam house on which the gable has been raised. Lovely building. Is it still standing?

Twm I believe the building is still there. I used to love going to Castle Brom all them posh houses people with money. When I was young I said to myself that I would live in Castle Brom when I got older, unfortunately the nearest I got was Shard End.

I know what you mean townie, I used to dream as a kid of living in Rednal Rd, Kings Norton or St Bernard's Rd, Solihull. I would do place the ball in the evening mail, hoping I could win to live in one of those posh houses, never did but really happy in the sticks with no one to bother me...

Hello Townie
Great work
You bring back such good memories for me. Do you know anything about Rawlings Farm.
He had some great Shire Horses. Used to go down Green Lane to buy fresh eggs.
Was a best Man at The Coach and Horses.
It was so different after Cathcart Street, Vauxhall.
Many Thanks
Gerald.

Hello Townie
As you came through Castle Brom it was a large house with a big wooden farm gate on the left if you were going to Water Orton.
Anyone remember the Castle Bromwich show on the corner of Newport Road and Chester Road.
