Do you remember Barbara?

I bet both ladies remember the old Chip Shop on the corner of Seeds Lane and Lichfield Road. Image from Memories of Old Brownhills by Bill Mayo and Geof Harrington.

Hi folks – a gentle and respectful  return to business as usual with a quick enquiry I’ve had in for a few days from reader Wendy Gates, who’s trying to trace a lady called Barbara who lived in Lichfield Road, Brownhills and a girl in the 1950s.

Hi Bob

I’m after a post searching for someone.

I’m looking for Barbara (surname unknown) who lived in Lichfield Road next door to Pat Warner.

I believe they both went to The Friary School together and that she went on to become a teacher.

Pat was born 1942 and I think they were neighbours and friends from young, so the period we’re talking about would be from 1955 onwards I think.

If anyone can help be fab! I am Pat Warner’s niece.

Wendy Gates.

If you are Barbara, remember her or can help with contact details that would be great thanks – please contact me in the first instance, either by commenting here of mailing me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

Thanks to Wendy for an interesting enquiry and to anyone who might be able to help.

    Hi, I was born in 1942 & lived in Seeds Lane. This photo looks a little before my time. I remember the shop & I think it had several owners, but cannot recall the names of the owners. I do remember the shop opposite in Lichfield Road, we used to buy out Tizer from their on a Sunday…..

      Hi Eric

      My name is Emma and j currently live in seeds lane. I wondered if you could tell me more about the history of seeds lane as there are plans for a large development at the back of the semi-detached houses on the left which will completely ruin the feel of the street.

      Many thanks

    I remember the chap (I believe he may have been the last person to live there!) used to paint the brick work of the house, and I can also remember the property when it was a chip shop.
