The Friday Photo: Station Road Cottages

Posted September 13th, 2013 by Birmingham Conservation Trust with 1 Comment


This isn’t the best quality picture ever but I wanted to take a photo of a group of beautiful cottages that are situated on Station Road in Erdington. A past project of BCT’s, these grade II listed properties were restored to their former glory in 1995. Station Road was known as Sheep Street up until the later part of the 19th century as much of the area was farm land. It is thought that the cottages were originally a 17C barn which was converted into housing in the 18C and were given their brick exterior at that time, however some of the original timbers remain exposed on the west side of the building.

    It looks a good quality picture to me, Clare! ‘Charming’ has got to be the right word for these cottages.
