Bigg. Did your mom live in the flats opposite the Library or the ones further down Shustoke road opposite the waste land?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Thanks :)


To be honest I didn't know it was new builds. Think my mum moved from Birmingham when she was 13. 


So I assume the flats have been pulled down too?? Thanks for your help

Hi again Bigg 1982,

St Martins Flats were built in 1938 and demolished in 1980, here is a photo of them being built, the second one is of them being demolished, and the last one shows the site today with it's modern housing. Incidentally the modern image is taken from the junction of Vaughton Street - Leopold Street which is where (approximately) the last photo in my previous post was taken.

Bigg I have 2 photos of the flats on Shustoke Road this one, although not very good shows the flats that would be opposite the library waiting to be built. In the foreground is the vicarage. If its not theses flats let me know, as I have another somewhere opposite the waste land.

Thanks for info and pics so far.  Will quiz my Dad a bit later sure Mum would have told him some of this stuff. 


Townie I know she lived 48 shushtoke if that helps at all?? Appreciate the pics so far.  Will find out which class she was in at timberley as well.


Phil. Thanks for the extra pics.  My sister seems to think Mum was born in 108 or 118 st martins flats.

Sorry Bigg1982,  I would have no way of knowing where exactly 108 or 118 St Martins flats was located. Although I did have friends and acquaintances who lived in the flats the numbers of their flats have slipped from memory years ago, so I have no reference point.

Hi Townie


My sister thinks the wasteland sounds familiar.  Pub wise as I mentioned earlier we think was the new inn, Moseley road?? But will confirm later.


Also another address she lived at was in chelmsley wood, Arbor road/way??


She lived in st martins until she was 7. Then shushtole until she was 11, then Arbor until 15.
