wild west town
« on: October 31, 2018, 06:00:03 PM »
Hi guys
does anyone remember a "wild west town" springing up on one of the "bomb Pecks" around the Brighton Rd/Clifton Rd in Balsall Heath, about 1969/70 ish,  i think it was only for a couple of weeks during a school holiday, you could change your money for "dollars" spend it in the salloon on drinks or in the store for snacks.
They had donkey rides, and used to play act gunfights, the town was built up by siting sheds and making facades on them to make it more "wild west" it was possibly run by students from a university or a local youth group.
I remember having a great time there, but can't remember all the things that they had on there
