Sutton Coldfield is steeped in history and its buildings tell the story of our town.
The Sutton Coldfield Civic Society have kindly devised our very own ‘Heritage Trail’ so that we can start to learn more about our town and not just take our beautiful buildings and history for granted, but to see them in a new, different light.
Did you know for example that the Royal Hotel on High Street used to be called The Old Swan Hotel and was actually a private home built in the mid 1700s?
Or that there is an old workhouse on Mill Street that was built in 1739 to comply with Poor Laws?
Or that the current Town Hall also used to be the old fire station? (The clock tower was used to hang the hosepipes of the fire service!)
You can learn so much more about our Royal Town on our intriguing heritage trail.
