In interesting historical enquiry reaches me from old friend of the blog and Friend of Brownhills Common Malcolm Littler, who’s looking for an image of a lost farm in Pelsall.
I’ll let him explain:
A long shot, but hope you can help.
A friend of mine was born at Fingerpost Farm, Pelsall in 1950.
He said the farm was demolished when he was 3 or 4. He would love a photograph of farm, but has been unable to trace one. I have seen one but can’t remember where.
Hope you can help…
I had a look at the maps and can’t find a Fingerpost Farm – that may be because the name was colloquial and never formalised, or may have changed – it may have been in a different place of course, too – but if you can help it would be most welcome.
Thanks to Malcolm for an excuse to get out a lovely bit of old mapping and if you can help, please do comment here or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com, cheers.
