St Laurence's Church in Northfield is one of the oldest churches in the Birmingham area, the original Tower and Nave built by the Normans between 1000-20 c. All that remains now of the Norman building is the base of the Tower, a doorway, and the pillars at the Chancel opening. The Great Stone Inn is also a hefty landmark as it is one of the oldest licensed houses still remaining in Birmingham. The boulder, that the pub was named after, can be seen on its corner in the centre of the picture, but now resides in the pond next to the church.
