Coleshill is constantly changing so I though it would be interesting to show some of the changes over the last 50 yrs

Thanks for the photos chocks. I've never seen old photos of Colehill. I love the old station,lot more character then the new one.

Agree with you about the station Frothy. As you know, I'm not too struck on modern buildings anyway but I think you hit the nail on the head whith the word "character"

I have loads of old photos of Coleshill. I'll drip them in every now and then. I've never put any on the BHF bucause I don't think there is too much interest on there for the area

Have you got a photo of the old Army Navy stores in Coleshill. I loved that shop.

I see the river could be forded in the past. Shame it can't be done today. Would save a lot of hassle crossing the bridge.
