Cotteridge Church in 2008 - since the mid eighties the consolidated home of the Methodist, Anglican and URC churches, along with various community facilities. The former URC site on Watford Road became old people's flats in the 1980s, and St Agnes became a Kwik Save.

    This building used to be Wayvern Engineering, Dad (Stan Smith) Worked there for 27 years

    My mother was a cashier in the box office of the old Sayoy Cinema in the late 1930. In fact she worked to the day before I was born.

  • Anthony Collins:

    I am keen to find a photograph of the foundation stone which either plastered over or removed during building work in (I think the 1980s) as I need to confirm that John Bowen built the church. It was a typical backdrop to wedding photos taken in the porch.
    Can anyone help please?
