History

Caption for Barnt Green, Hewell Road C1965

It was only in the 1880s, however, when much of the Plymouth estate was sold off, that development began. Houses were built near the station, and a recognisable village centre began to form, with a range of amenities.

Dr Blair

My grandmother worked for Dr Blair, Barnt Green in the early 1940's. She returned to North Wales and stayed in touch with the family for a long period. Does anyone know the whereabouts of where Dr Blair lived, or any information about the area during the 1940's? Thanks, Kristy.

Woodruffe School

I lived in Barnt Green from 1941 to 1961. I attended a tiny school held in the headmistress's back garden - a long shed like building! It was an excellent school, and I left there to attend Bromsgrove High School. Does anyone out there remember a little girl called Tyers? Or a head mistress - Miss Woodruffe and her assistant Miss Matthews?
