Interesting that Perry Common development is really not Perry common as Perry Common is up by George Frederick Road ( i.e. Perry Common Farm) the old Farm House is still there in George Frederick Road

Are you sure you are not getting confused with Perry Barr Common Farm as shown on Roy's map in your other post about Kingsvale ?

Perry Common Farm sometimes known as Perry Barr Common Farm was part of the old Perry Common


Perry (Barr) Common Farm took its name because the land formed part of the Old Perry Common.....


if you look at even earlier maps than those posted you will see the confirmation of this...


Perry Common was like so many areas renamed by either developers or post office and or politicians....


did you know that part of what is now Perry Common was once called Hamstead due to the postal service which sorting office was the Scott Arms Pub!!!!

Very interesting Queslett,  thanks very much for that information.

I found this site showing aerial views of the Perry Common development in the 1920s,  completely surrounded by farmland in those days.
