Favourite Building
  • The Nadia Siekierska museum in Walmley is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Its surprisingly good value, with a cup of orange squash and a custard cream included in the 3.50 entry. You can see memorabilia from her youth inc her first home perm kit, old school uniform and even a rare collection of chewed fingernails. A really good fmaily day out.
  • Bishop Vesey's Grammar School. It is supposed to have a tunnel going along the Lichfield Road, stopping at the town hall, the Three Tuns pub and Holy Trinity Church by Mill street. It also is rumoured to have ghosts (in the old music department in a blocked off room opposite B3) who were killed during the black death.
  • Toss up between the Odeon Cinema and Wylde Green URC - a beautiful looking church in Boldmere.
  • ma fav buildin is probly da hut up boldmere 4 doin stuff ;)
  • Clock Tower opposite the Trinity Church.. shame about its condition The little cottage next to Riland Road Railway Bridge
  • What used to be Town County Primary School, but no longer
  • my house and the pubs in sutton park
  • I really like BVGS. It's old but inside the little corridors and little rooms have a charm all of their own!!! and i like the quad outside Big School, which is really nice when its sunny. But hey im a girl dont take my word for it
  • fairfax school the really old buildings inc three tuns round there and the church too
  • The town hall has a lot of history, and the three tuns pub supposedly has a secret tunnel underneath it that runs from one end of town to the next. It is a very old pub that Henry 8th waqs rumoured to have stayed at when hunting in Sutton Park.
  • The church at the top of the town centre, supposed to be haunted but very cool
  • All saints Church at the top of Belwell Lane in Four Oaks. Iused to go to cubs behind it. I think we were the 17th B on a Tuesday night. We were the best cubs team in the 70's
  • Could u please add Fairfax school to your list of favourite schools!!!!
  • Has to be the Gate, bring it back!!
  • Magnificent houses in Four Oaks Park, Old parts of Penns Hall,
  • Town Middle School - now a baptist church - old Victorian school with massive slassrooms, always a good laugh.
  • The late Sutton Coldfield bus garage on Upper Holland RD.
  • The Town Hall.
  • OSCOTT COLLEGE (St. Mary's Seminary)
  • Sutton Girls' School. Crap school, great building. Also check out the farmhouse where Bishop Vesey was born on Moor Hall Drive.
  • Three Tuns at the top of high street. Am impressed with the managers remodeling
  • Sutton Coldfield station. Maybe because it reminds of excitng adventures of going into Brum shopping when I was 13.
