Shard End Lake, Shard End, east Birmingham
Shard End Lake, Shard End, east Birmingham
The mast to the right of the flats belongs to the Sea Cadets at the T.S. Stirling off Pithall Road. The site adjoins the Norman Chamberlain Recreation Ground, itself part of the extensive Kingfisher Country Park along the River Cole. On a map of 1938 Shard End is a typical Arden hamlet around a couple of farms. By 1951 the Shard End estate has been built; the lake is labelled 'Old Gravel Pit', perhaps dug in the war years.
