Kitts Green, Lea Village and Glebe Farm
« on: April 24, 2012, 11:17:43 PM »
Does anyone have any photographs of Glebe Farm (actual Farm), Lea Hall and the history of Kitts Green.  I know it belonged to the Kitt family but I can't find out anything else ???

I have these few photos of Glebe farm that look to be taken shortly before it was demolished. I can also tell you that the farm was once owned by Matthew Bolton of Bolton, Watt & Murdoch fame. He later sold it to the church and it became a Glebe, which as you may know means a parcel of land that is used to upkeep  local parsonage.

Phil, thank you so much for those glorious photos.  My family are ecstatic!  No one has ever seen them before.  I know the exact junction.  It's an extremely busy junction now and fancy it belonging to Matthew Bolton!!!  Wow!  You've got a wonderful collection Phil.

droberts,
 
I can only speak for the photos that I post myself, which are collected from all over the net and although most of them that I do pick up the original posters do not quote their source or copyright details. If however they do, then I always quote them.
 
I do not post any of the photos that I do on any profit or gain basis and if anyone were to question the ownership of any photo that I posted then I would remove it as soon as proof of ownership was given.
 
On this basis, I would advise against any photo I post being placed in any book, except where the source is quoted and permission can be obtained. I would advise you though to check out the law on copyright because on certain photos it expires after a certain age and there are a lot of old photos out there.

If you haven’t heard of Lea Village (it is in Shard End, very close to the airport) then don’t worry. Even in 1932 a reporter from the Birmingham Mail described it as “… probably the loneliest, most rural and least known spot in Birmingham”.
Although the history of the village can be traced back to 1275, it became subsumed under the suburban growth of Birmingham in the 1930s and post war estate building projects. There are now no signs for Lea Village, no markers of its rich history. However, Lea Village’s past is marked by German planes that were shot down in the Second World War, the roads built by POWs, the role of the now demolished Lea Hall in the Civil War and the people who moved here, including Sam Musson who walked from Leicestershire to Lea Village in 1850 to begin a small-holding and open a sweet shop. Birmingham’s rich history lies not just in its industrial city centre past, but in its hinterlands too.
