Aston Hall and Aston park 1934



Library services at Home (Birmingham's Home Library Service) have got together with some of their visually impaired members to discuss their memories and recollections triggered by the photos from the Britain from Above project. We have also added a few facts and dates for the project.



The centre of the photo shows a very big house surrounded by formal gardens. This building is Aston Hall and was built by Sir Thomas Holt between 1618 and 1635. You can see a church at the top right hand corner which is known as Aston Parish Church. This church was built in the 14th century.

Just below the church is the entrance to Aston Hall, noticeable with its stone archway and just above and to the left of the church are the roofs of the travelling Onion fair.



Starting from the left hand side of the photo you will be able to identify Aston Villa Football Ground which continues along until you reach the Holt Public House. Villa Park was bought outright by Aston Villa Football Club in 1911.



Comments



Charlie from Billesley recalls attending Aston Villa Football Ground for his first match in 1948.



Marie from Sutton Coldfield said ‘my husband use to stand at the Holt End at Aston Villa, although he was an arsenal fan. He would phone my brother up to tease him every time Arsenal played them and won’.



The Onion Fair was an annual travelling fun fair that had been popular in Birmingham since the 16th century.



Below is an audio description of the image. The narrator is Stan Hubbard.
