we use to play in the church yard a lot, where we lived the grove on sameside next to church they was a cut though ontoThen the forth picture of St Saviours Church. That was opposite where I lived in Ash Road. We used to go through a gap in the iron fencing to get into the church yard. The church bordered St. Saviours Rd, Ash Road and Hall Road. Hall was a great hill and I used to roller skate down there "hell for leather"!
So sad to see such a beautiful place go...……...I have been asked by member "Maysfamily" to locate and post an image of Fernbank that was located on Alum Rock Road apparently one of her ancestors lived there at one time. All I know about the house was it became part of a TA barracks until it was demolished and replaced by a housing estate, although the Army Cadet Force still has a unit HQ on site.
