I liked the Trittiford area pics, but after 65 years ago the memory, except the lock cottage at Warstock, is just vague.

I went to Highters Heath school, Infants and Juniors, (before going to Wheelers Lane). Memories of Flints etc.

I must warn you though, it was a LOOOONG time ago !
Oh I have such a lovely memory coming back as I see the name 'Flints' in front of me - isnt memory amazing....? anyway Flints had everything, ha yes always open too. I seem to remember the excitement of going there with parents because they had a 'magic or jokes section' so I would occasionally get a magic or funny gift to play with....I think!

Yes I too remember Flints. I went to Yardley Wood Junior school and I would sometimes go down Highters Heath Lane and then along the Yardley Wood rd calling at Flints on the way. It was an Aladdins cave to a small boy. For me too it was a long long time ago.
