The Dingles Blossomfield Road Solihull History

Just a quick blog today!

Came across this newspaper article in an April 1908 Birmingham Gazette

A large house in Blossomfield's road, Solihull was for sale by auction as the owner, Henry Weston Esq, was moving near to London. Called "The Dingles"

In fact the house extended to over 10 acres including the house, well laid out and beautifully planted grounds, lawns, gardening, stables, coachman's cottage and three fields of old turf


Of course the house and grounds are no longer long given up to the houses and roads that have been built since.
