The pictures were drawn by the late Mr Alan Green and the accompanying notes written by Mr Roger Lea, Chair of Sutton Coldfield's Local History Research Group.
The Trail starts to the north of the Town Centre on the Lichfield Road, with Bishop Vesey's School and continues down the historic High Street, Coleshill Street and Mill Street, now a conservation Area. It continues across the Parade to the Birmingham Road and ends at the Horse and Jockey Public House..
There is an additional map of the High Street Conservation Area with drawings and historic details of 12 buildings within the area.
The Society hope that this Town Trail will encourage both locals and visitors to take a fresh look at Sutton Coldfield's impressive heritage and to appreciate the special character of the town.
The leaflet's 2nd edition was funded from the Community Chest and the 3rd edition by the Town Centre Business Improvement District. A fourth edition is currently being prepared funded by Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council's Community Grant Programme. We are very grateful for this support.
