Six Ways Aston

Ray if there are 6 pubs it would take longer surely than 15 minutes?? Moss obviously goes straight there just looking at Churches. lol

Many thanks to you both

image.jpeg This view of Six Ways Aston shows Victoria Road and the Baptist Church straight ahead and High Street off to the right. The very ornate bank with the turret on the right has gone as has the chemist's curved building to the left, although the row of buildings next door to the chemist's shop are still there today. This is the corner where Birchfield Road meets Witton Road. Even in the early 1900s this junction of roads was a busy road and of the 6 roads which met at this point, five had tramways passing through here. No wonder there's a policeman on duty to help people safely cross the road(s). Viv.

Hi Mossg
just looking at your reply to carolyn saying 3 quarters of a mile from the aston cross
as ray said i think he was right , to be technicaly and to be honest as an old athlete
and a runner of miles i was say to be honest a 2 mile distance would be appropiate
To old six ways Aston, but sayin that i would not be surprized if it was 2 and half
and if the truth being know on foot half an hour walking it, if you was reasonably fit
best wishes as always Astonian,,,,,,,

The distance would be less than a mile, straight up Park Lane, walked it many times between 10 and 15 minutes,
