In the 20's and 30's farms and farmland in rural Birmingham were being sold to building developers. Lea Hall was demolished in 1937 due to a railway station being built in the cutting beside it. 30th May 1937'For some years I had thought that a place at Lea Hall would make a good sketch but it is an akward place to get at, a fair amount of walking, but fears of building encroachment made me get a move on and go out and do it today. There are hundreds and hundreds of houses on the other side of the railway. Lea Hall and the old farms are pulled down. It was a glorious day, hot and sunny. I heard the cuckoo'. Extract from the diaries of Frank Taylor Lockwood.

Presented by Arthur Lockwood and Jean Barnsby.
