Dennis, If I knew where it is/was I would be able to look it up, I was hoping you would tell me. It would have been the newest pub in Shard End I think, it may have had an agricultural name.
I will have a look on Google maps to see if I can find the road.

The road I remember going down was Brook Meadow Road. I just tried a familiar left turn off it and found I was on Old Forest Way which is the name of the road I was trying to remember.
So, the pub was probably the Brook Meadow. Did this go by other names in the past?

That's right I put Long Meadow instead of Brook Meadow due to the fact I was doing something else on Long Meadow girls School

All Saints Church (Anglican) is situated in Coneyford Road and Ownall Road. It was opened by the Queen in 1955. It has the distinction of being the first Church of England church to be built and consecrated after the war, anywhere in the country. There is also a Methodist and a Baptist church.
Shard End has its own community Centre on Packington Avenue, on the opposite side of the road to the Police Station. At one time, this station had the largest meeting room in the police sub division. There is a shopping area, crown post office and surgery on Shard End Crescent. Cole Hall Farm was derelict for a number of years but has now been converted into a pub. There are four primary and there was two secondary schools.
The River Cole, a tributary of the River Tame, runs through Shard End, into Kingshurst. It forms the heart of the Kingfisher Country Park.

I used to belong to a modelling club in shard end community centre, it was a very nice place then over twenty years ago.
The Police station now comes under the Birmingham East Local Policing Unit ( LPU) Based at Stechford.

The Shard End community centre was a great place, remember playing football out the back and a lot inside. Brings back great memories if only i was young again, what we had was a lot better than they have today mainly because we made our own entertainment, and not sitting in front of the goggle box with their xbox But nothing stopping the youth of today getting of their backsides and having fun without getting into trouble.

In the early eighties I used to service the emergency lighting at the Community Centre, four times a year. On one visit there was the biggest Scalextric layout I had ever seen.

That Scalextric belonged to one of the members of the Model club I used to belong to. I got him the boards to put it on.
