St Peter's Church, Highfield Road, Hall Green was built in 1964.

Their webpage reads:

The church, built in 1964, is octagonal in shape and covered by a single span of concrete forming a dome. The height at the centre of the nave is 35 feet, the width, from east to west, is 93 feet, slightly longer than from north to south, which is 75 feet. The tower is 102 feet high to the top of the cross.

Designed, as are all the windows in the church, by Tristan Ruhlmann, from Alsace, France, it is based on the text from St. John’s Gospel of the risen Jesus telling St. Peter ‘Feed my sheep’. It is of a unique design developed by Ruhlmann which involves setting pieces of stained glass in concrete panels.

The twelve carpet windows. These windows depict ancient prayer mats as were hung up in open windows in early churches, and are also based on Islamic designs from Turkey. They have slightly wavy edges to symbolise movement in the wind.

The Old Rose & Crown is a lovely old building on the Lickey Hills.

Their webpage reads:

Originally a coaching inn, the Old Rose and Crown Hotel is steeped in history and is a landmark building in the heart of the stunning Lickey Hills. Set in the 400-acre park, the hotel is easily accessible from the M42 and M5 motorways – and just 9 miles from Birmingham City Centre.

Another entry about the hotel suggests that it started life more than 300 years ago as a courthouse, then became a coaching inn, where horses rested before the long climb up what is now Rose Hill.

It was purchased by the Cadbury family, who, along with many acres of the Lickeys, bequeathed the building to the Birmingham people.

The current occupiers have owned it for 20yrs.
