Brownhills Birds Eye View
 
Brownhills Bob is a resident of Brownhills and has been since childhood. He went to school there and has seen the best and worst of times in the town. He remembers the busy High Street of the 70′s and the bad old days of the recession in the 80′s. He remembers chips from the chippy in Lichfield Road, Ice Cream from Joes and wanting a bike for Christmas from Wood’s bike shop. He remembers the tip in Clayhanger, the flooded Spot and the slag heap near Clayhanger Bridge, summer barbecues at the big house in Clayhanger and the Carnival when it usually rained. The smell of the pig farm and the chemicals from Effluent Disposal. Gordon Roberts, his strop, cut-throat and Trugel. Coppice Radio and Preedy’s. Freight trains rattling through a summer night, Harper’s busses and the sound of motorbikes from the raceway.... Anything you want to know about Brownhills, visit Brownhills Bob website
