Erdington is to be found to the north of Birmingham in the Midlands, and has been a settlement since before Saxon times. Today many of the routes through the town are still in existence, Kingsbury Road and Chester Road were important routes for the trade that was carried on in the area. The family name of De Erdington goes back to 1166 however by 1467 the family died out and their tomb can still be seen today in Aston parish church. Erdington has throughout its history been very much a rural area, up until the 18th century it consisted of around 40 farms and had a population of 700. The coming of the canals and the railways was to change that and the 19th century saw the population increase to around 9,000. For those of a certain age though Erdington is more than a place on a map, it is a place to honour past rock bands, for those who grew up in the 1960ís the rock band Pink Floyd played at Motherís Ė and it was here that the band recorded part of their album Ummagumma in 1969. At one time Motherís was the most important venue outside of London for bands (of that era) to play, Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd all playing there during that magical period between 1968 and 1971 when the club eventually closed. For others Erdington is represented by its abbey that was built in 1847, or maybe itís for Fort Dunlop or possibly for the tribute to the Spitfire planes that were built nearby by local workers, or even Spaghetti Junction whatever it is Erdington is a place that one will not easily forget

I used to look at these pictures of trumpeters pointing their instrument to the ceiling. Stunning pictures, but if you play the trumpet and point it upwards, all the spit comes back into your mouth! - Humphrey Lyttleton
