Environs Of Sutton Coldfield – A History In Maps


Armchair Time Travellers Guide Series


This book provides a fascinating tour of Sutton Coldfield’s History using historical and local maps. A number of maps from the turn of the 18th century present the town as “Sutton Cole field”. Maps from this period illustrated in this book also refer to “Cofeld Wast” and “Cofield Wast”, a landscape of sparsely wooded heath land, scrub and gorse, water logged or arid, left after the many trees had been felled for charcoal burning. In addition to the informative text, old views of Sutton Coldfield, and Sutton Park, the many old maps presented across three centuries will enable an informative gateway to the colourful and rich history of the “Royal Town” and its neighbouring communities; ( Boldmere, Four Oaks, Little Aston, Streetly, Whitehouse Common, Reddycap Heath, Walmley, Little Sutton and Mere Green)
