Merlin Garage Hanch Lane


master brummie
It is of course Haunch Lane near the junction of Yardley Wood Rd and the pic of the prefab is the first one after the garage,When we were working there on a Valley Riverside Project workday the owner of that pic can out and gave it to us to copy, his cherry tree that he planted in the garden is still there! I left it till now to give other people time to guess...........

If you carried on up Haunch Lane, past the Tudor, does anyone remember a circular area of scrub that you walked through to get to the shops? I used to go for my Dad's cigarettes at the newsagents there. 10 Turf, and some licorice rolls for me with the change.
