Church of England Diocese of Birmingham Northfield

Northfield Revealed (updated September 2021)

Northfield was one of the areas of Birmingham that was rapidly developed immediately before and after the First World War. Although the core of the historic village - with the church of St Laurence at its heart – survives intact, it is tucked away off the main routes so many are not aware of its existence. A key aim of our project is to reconnect the historic and modern centres of Northfield – indeed to ‘Reveal Northfield’ and boost community pride.

Resources to support the Project can be found at Northfield Revealed project 2020 - St Laurence Church, Northfield, Birmingham, B31 2LX (stlaurencenorthfield.org) A Virtual Tour for Schools can be downloaded at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ItC5bzvoTHzhWRiZsIoUh4AYr-6O72Ce/view?usp=sharing

A Family Day will be held on Saturday 25th September 1pm-4pm in the Church
