That's a good find Astoness. There is a lot of other good stuff on that website.

Whilst researching family history I'm surprised how often St Philips pops up for Christenings and Marriages.
I recently read an old archeology report on St Philips, if I can find it again I'll post it here.

Just aired on the BBC Chelsea Flower Show was a shot of the Birmingham City Council entry featuring 300 years of the Cathedral.
