Grazebrook FountainThe Grazebrook drinking fountain is the tall stone structure on the right of this photograph taken in the 1920s, at what today is the A456/A491 traffic light controlled junction. Birmingham is to our left and Stourbridge is behind the photographer. This drinking fountain was erected by neighbours and friends to celebrate the diamond wedding in 1915 of Mr and Mrs John P Grazebrook. John Grazebrook, an ironmaster, lived at The Court, which was located to the right of the camera. The drinking fountain was later moved to Park Road, near Lyttelton Place, and close to the A456/A491 traffic island. This move was necessary when road widening was done at the junction of Stourbridge Road and Birmingham Road depicted above.

In the left distance is Hagley Cattle Market and the offices of auctioneers Chapel & Foster. The houses in Market Way now occupy the site of the cattle market

Hagley Historical & Field Society

Welcome to Hagley Historical and Field Society. On our website you will discover something of the history of Hagley and details of our activities. You will find a warm welcome at our meetings which are generally held on the first Tuesday of each month.

We enjoy a wide variety of speakers talking on a range of topics relating to the history of Worcestershire, the West Midlands and beyond. Visitors are also welcome to join the full programme of walks and visits. Whilst the majority of our members are happy to enjoy the meetings and other activities, a small group is engaged in active local research; some of their publications may be viewed our site.
