    I’m not aware of any bowling club. Which one are you referring to?

    Dear Sirs

    I enjoyed your site. Can anyone tell me if there was railway line at edge of the park? I seem to remember trains passing by in the 50s and 60s. Could I have imagined them? Or was that King’s Heath?

    Yes indeed, there was, and still is.
    In fact, there is now a campaign to have the Kings Heath and Moseley Stations re-opened to commuter service. If you support the plan, there are shops (farmer’s markets) in Moseley & Kings Heath with a petition. Or you can visit these sites:

    Re-open Kings Heath Station!

    Consultation on Reopening the KH/ Moseley stations NOW untill 11/09/09

    Centro consultation

    The facebook site is very helpful, the Centro site less so.

    Has anybody have any information about or photographs of the Tearooms that used to be in Highbury Park? They were near the small ornamental pool, but they were demolished in the late sixties or early seventies. It would be great to see some images if anyone has any.
    Thanks,
    Tony

    It sounds like you are asking about the Henburys tearooms – though they were known by a nickname. There are a couple of distant photos, like this, but if you are local, you might have much better luck asking the Kings Heath Historical Society (based at KH Library) for info. The pool is still there – take a look in the galleries for Henbury Pond. I also suggest you look at the Historic Landscape Appraisal Page View.

    Does anyone know the history of the building at the back of Dad’s Lane- I believe it was once part of the stables connected to Highbury Park???

    Ailsa, I’m not sure which building you mean. Can you pinpoint the location more exactly?
