Colebath Cottages were near the junction of Colebath Rd and Yardley Wood Rd backing onto the golf course.
Colebath Farm was on Yardley Wood Rd opposite Windermere Rd where the old steam roller depot was.

Colbath Farm, is now Moseley Golf Club isn't it? I remember the road roller depot on Yardley Wood Rd. That was a while back now.

   I  went  to  see  the  cricket  behind  the  road  roller  dept (c 1952 ).  The  ground  is  still  there  I  see  on  Google.  I  lived  in  the  Pre - Fabs  just  down  the  road.
