Birchfield Road Playing Field, Headless Cross, Redditch
Birchfield Road Playing Field, Headless Cross, Redditch
From the first OS 1:2500 map of 1883-4 this land has been shown as vacant but it is not until 1938 that it is labelled Playing Fields; there was a central pavilion. By this time a recreation ground always shown to the north of Rectory Road had been built on or turned over to allotments. Here is a MUGA multi-use games area with the former first water tower beyond it.
