Kinlet Grove, Northfield


master brummie
Does anyone recall Kinlet Grove in Northfield? It doesn't appear in online street maps. There is a Kinlet Avenue although Google Streetview shows this to be a recently built road of dwellings.

Where was Kinlet Grove in relation to existing roads or Kinlet Avenue? What happened to Kinlet Grove? Does anyone have any photographs?

Thanks very much.

Ah, thanks mikejee, that's very helpful.

Comparing the 1965 roads with todays roads on Google Maps/Street View shows that the whole area was recently redeveloped then. Does anyone know why? Were these houses the council houses which I think were known as Boot houses, with structural problems, which therefore had to be demolished?

If anyone has any photos of Kinlet Grove, that would be much appreciated as well.
