The Anglican Churches of Britain's Second City
. . . from Aston to Yardley
I started this website in March 2011, but it's far from complete. Birmingham churches are pretty much done - I'm working on the Aston churches at the moment. In the meantime, you might be interested in
A History of Birmingham Places & Placenames . . . from A to Y - http://billdargue.jimdo.com/.
This site is organised by the ancient parishes which are now within the City of Birmingham. Daughter churches in each ancient parish are then listed in order of their date of foundation.
There will eventually be an alphabetical list of parishes and dedications, but until then you'll need to check the Sitemap to find which churches have been covered.
To find a church near you, go to A Church Near You.
See also the Diocese of Birmingham website.
Churches which are listed buildings can be found on
Historic England's website.
Apologies to returning users - I have recently done little work on this site as I'm busy raising funds to refurbish Castle Bromwich bells. If you want to hasten the process, you could always donate to a good cause on the Castle Bromwich Bellringers' website! - http://cbbells.webs.com/.
To those of you who have already kindly donated, my sincere thanks. Bill Dargue
