SPARKHILL & GREET 1887 - WARWICKSHIRE SHEET 14.14A
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published four versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. They cover the eastern area of Birmingham around Sparkhill and Greet. Coverage stretches from Stoney Lane eastward to Knights Lane, and from Gough Road southward to Woodlands Road. The Warwick Road and Stratford Road run through the map, which also includes Showell Green.
Features include Premier Works, tramways, Burbury Brick Works, fireworks factories, River Cole, Greet Brick Works, Showell Green House, St John's church, streets of terraced housing around Sparkhill, Greet Bridge, Tyseley Brick Works, Greetmill Hill Farm, schools etc.
Please note: The 1938 version does not include railway information as this and some other revision material had been lost, presumably due to bomb damage in the war.
The map links up with sheets 14.10 Small Heath to the north, 14.13 Moseley to the west, 14.15 Acocks Green to the east and Worcestershire sheet 11.02 Hall Green to the south.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
