During the week I went there for various meetings. During refurbishment the other hall, the school room, 5 minutes away which was... More

This church is very old. It's reportedly in the doomsday book. I got married here in 1981 all my 5sisters married here and one of my daughter's married here two years ago. This is a church no grave yard.

Walking through this small "village" in a city is like being transported back in time. The church itself is a beautiful old building, on one side you have old Yardley Village and the other side is Queen's Park with big playing fields, a play area and tennis courts. It is well worth a visit.

Set within the "village" of Old Yardley, you could be forgiven to briefly imagine that you were transported back in time. Next door to the 15th century church is the medieval Trust School building and nearby there is a Victorian School building. Both these buildings are now used as Parish rooms. The area has small cottages, a number of old... More

Lovely old church in the heart of Birmingham. Attended for a friends wedding. Tucked away in Old Yardley, you wouldn't know it was there unless you were looking for it - a hidden treasure.

Is is a beautiful old church in lovely grounds. It set in a medium size park, with a good little playground for the kids. Well worth a visit if your in the area.

St. Edburghas Church is a lovely old church with a bit of a cemetary around it, the church itself is a beautiful building with a recently renovated spire, if you are lucky enough to visit when it is open and churches are your thing then it is fantastic inside, facing the church are some lovely renovated old cottages, and a...

Beautiful Ye Olde church in the heart of Yardley, Birmingham. Close to Blakesley Hall and worth a look if you are passing by. Has a Pomegranate carved into the building to commemorate the wedding of Katherine of Arragon to King Henry VIII and the church was a gift from Henry to Katherine in their divorce. Old school house next to... More
