Lovely example of a 1930s church Josie. And a very decorative interior - bright and uplifting! Very like Byzantine architecture. Viv.

Hi Josie. I've moved your posts and others comments to this separate thread of its own as it will be lost amongst the info in the original thread. Hope that's ok. Viv.

When I lived in Witton Rd ( 1970's ) I went to the Sacred Heart on Witton Rd, at the junction of Presbury Rd, it was below the Guild Pub, and almost opposite Mansfield Rd It was the main Catholic Church for the Witton /Aston area
