My old mum and I moved into a prefab on Brockley grove just off dog pool lane (dads lane) in moseley in about 1959 and my old mum thought it was heaven, it had a "fitted kitchen" i.e a built in washing machine, she'd always had to do her washing by hand before and in both bedrooms were "metal" fitted wardrobes. As it was detached, standing surounded with a nice little garden we both loved it. unfortunatly it' now been demolished and  Brockley grove is now unsign posted and is a dog walking area but I will always have very fond memories of mom's little "bungalow".

  1. So many wonderful memeories of living in Brockley Grove. 1951/1959. Playing on the roape swing up the woods. Exploring the old allotments, paddling in the River Rae. 71 years old now, but my memories will last for ever. Fond memories of Susan Whitehouse, Betty Heath, Susan Brough, where are they now?
