Are you thinking of the sandy outcrop that is at Salford Bridge and behind the houses of Minstead Road.
No, I remember the Salford bridge end of minstead road, my cousins lived towards the bottom on the RH side. The sand area I am thinking about was the other end of minstead towards wheelwright road.


This forum is remarkable, it makes it possible to relive the past, it unlocks so many memories........
I also remember going to Erdington on the midland red with my mother, catching it at the top of goosemore lane and court lane. S76 via court lane and S67 via goosemore . Every 15 min service, good old days.

The S67 and S76 commenced in 1938 and 1939 respectively. Midland Red withdrew these services 1 Feb 1971, Photo taken from a great book, "Birmingham Buses Route by Route 1925-1975 by Malcolm Keeley".
