cant answer that SB but here is a pic of the magnificent building taken in 1963 that was demolished so that the library that they have just closed could be built on the same spot...to the left of the pic you can just see the edge of the original library which they also demolished...if anyone can justify that i will eat my hat..

exactly...you wouldnt belive how that area has been knocked about over the years...christ the church was i would say on the spot where that floosie in the jacuzzi is now..just as an aside when john baskeville died at his own request he was buried in the grounds of his garden at easy hill..when the canals came though the land his body was moved to a crypt in christ the church...when the church was demolished poor old john was again moved to the catacombs at warstone lane cemetary...baskerville house is built on the ground where easy hill was...a few of the old wooden steps that were in christ the church were saved and are now at blakesley hall and ive seen them..

You don't have to apologise lyn I agree with every word you say ,what are we leaving for future generations,they will have nothing to look back on, the way the place is being knocked down and new buildings being put up you can't replace history.

totally agree with you jo...ive just had a thought and i will have to check this but i think ive read that john baskerville (who was an athiest) was not actually buried in the grounds of his garden a easy hill..his instructions were that his body be upright in a glass case and on view..he was then moved to the crypt at christ the church...
