Synopsis

The village of King's Norton began to evolve in the medieval period and is continuing to grow and change while retaining its earlier landscape of a village surrounding a green. The creation of a cemetery at Longdales Road, and a development at Parsons Hill, have produced evidence of Roman activity possibly in conjunction with the transportation of salt from Droitwich Spa to Metchley Fort along Icknield Street. The canals are now used for leisure and may become a substitute for road transport for a wider heritage trail. Much of King's Norton was transferred from Worcestershire to Warwickshire in 1911 as part of the Greater Birmingham Extension Act. The inevitable encroachment onto Greenfield land was forecast by the visionary George Cadbury and a visit to King's Norton still means a visit to the Worcestershire countryside, but for how much longer?

Wendy Pearson has spent most of her life in Birmingham or the Black Country although has travelled widely to Third World or emerging countries. One of her main interests is photography and had become a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society in 1997. Sport was a major past-time and she gained various representative honours playing netball, basketball and volleyball. Since retiring she has become involved with a Resident's Association whom she represents on the Ward Advisory Board. She is currently a member of English Heritage, and worked for some years as a guide for the National Trust. She currently runs two afternoon local history groups for people who are reluctant to go out during the dark winter evenings but who wish to discuss and explore the history of their neighbourhood. She objects to wilful destruction of significant heritage properties and the environment, and is in favour of empowering communities to determine what they want in their own neighbourhood.
