I know the area quite well, spent time in Shirley visiting Aunts and Uncles, one in Longmoor Rd, and the other in Chamberlin Crescent. My Aunt now lives in Sheltered Accommodation, near Shirley Station.


I spent a lot of my youth in Shirley, Monkspath, and Hockley Heath in the 70ís. I was back there about 18 months ago, the place had changed so much, particularly from where I knew Archers Garage out past the M42.


Is the Cinema still standing in Shirley? What about Shirley Temple Chinese?

Shirley Odeon closed many years ago (even before I moved there. They built a safeway there which then became a Morrisons. That closed 2 years back and is now due for demolition to build more sheltered housing.  Shirley temple also closed a couple of years back and became an Italian.

Born in Sorrento Maternity Hospital Moseley and then home to Cattel Road, Small heath opposite the Blues ground. Aged 3 we moved to Beach Road, Sparkhill.  Lived there until I reached 20 then parents moved to Acocks Green (Denham Road) and I got married shortly after.  We bought a house in Brandon Road, Hall Green and then after a couple of years moved up into Shirley (Technically not Brum I know). 41 years later still in Shirley though not the same house.
Worked all my life in Brum. Initially Woolworths in Sparkhill, then Newman College, Bartley Green followed by Lucas Aerospace Hall Green. Last 31 years been teaching science in schools around the city.
