Ward End Christian Spiritualist church was a meeting place for cubs and scouts early in the 1900’s I believe. In fact in the 80s, I think there might have even been some kind of plaque or photos in there.

From a website enquiry. Does this help?

“I used to go to a little church on Wall Bank Road. It was a little wooden hut that used to be used by scouts/cubs in the area before it became a church.”


Ward End Scouts history: can anyone help?

We've just had this enquiry:

Hi I am the Explorer Scout Leader at 34th Birmingham Scouts meeting at Rogers Road, I am trying to trace the history of the scout group which I believe was started in 1909 somewhere near St Margarets Church. I am hoping one of more of your members will be able to help me with background information about the area please.

If so, please contact us
