When the present County Buildings were opened in about 1974 it brought together two aspects of the...

Whilst it has been proposed it will have to be paid for by the developer of the site as SVR will be having to spend its resources for the foreseeable future on major infrastructure repairs. Today's announcement to stall was the tunnel project came in on time (last Saturday) and on budget.

You mentioned Phil Thickett, the Head of Media at Birmingham City University, and how universities and colleges could pay a major role in local television. Because you work in Birmingham you immediately thought of students from the three universities...

Any suggestions for the words in the centre of this Debtors Prison stone?

I noted that the upper stone indicated that it was originally a prison but I had difficulty in deciphering the second word and did the word in the centre indicated an earlier building date than the 1816 stone?

In case your readers don't know much about "Baron Grant", or Abraham Gottheimer, he was the Liberal Conservative MP for Kidderminster from 12 July 1865 to 17 November 1868 and again from 2 February 1874 to 2 August 1874. There is an entry for Albert...

This produced interesting reading. Her father, Henry Sidney, is attributed as having planted "Bewdley's Sweet Chestnut" in 1567. Mary had 3 sisters and whilst some say that her father planted the tree to commemorate Prince Arthur’s...

I think a spell-checker would be a good idea, as would a decent search engine to check some past subjects.
Apart from Wyfopedia has WFA spawned off any other offspring?
It is certainly regularly quoted and referred to often on "The Mad Ranter". In fact...

I think it was the London home of a Kidderminster MP, as distinct from a Wyre Forest or Bewdley MP?
