Selly Park: the park on Raddlebarn Road of the suburb with the same name

This park is on the no 76 bus route between Solihull and the QE Hospital and is not that far from the University of Birmingham. Selly Park shares it's name with the suburb of the same name Selly Park. The park takes is name from Selly Hall, a Tudor-style 19th century mansion that was sold to the Roman Catholic Church in 1864. The Roman Catholic Church of St Edward is nearby.

Selly Park: the park on Raddlebarn Road of the suburb with the same name





This park is on the no 76 bus route between Solihull and the QE Hospital and is not that far from the University of Birmingham. Selly Park shares it's name with the suburb of the same name Selly Park. The park takes is name from Selly Hall, a Tudor-style 19th century mansion that was sold to the Roman Catholic Church in 1864. The Roman Catholic Church of St Edward is nearby.


A visit to Selly Park during the beginning of October 2019. Getting off the no 76 bus on Raddlebarn Road, I entered via the corner path at Raddlebarn Road and Warwards Lane. This old rusted bollard at the start of the path.

The path leads to this playground up ahead. Sometimes Selly Park is also called a Recreation Ground.

Near the playground, saw this blue wind pipe thing. There is a similar one over at Selly Oak Park (will do a post on that park soon probably).

Always prefer taking playgrounds when they are empty.

There is a large football field and outdoor gym equipment. But on the day of my visit, found many gulls on the goalpost!

Above the gulls on the goalpost, you can see the Beetham Tower.

Saw this coach from Swan Street Coaches. Parked near St Paul's Convent on Selly Park Road. Now owned by the Roman Catholic Church I think this was what was Selly Hall. Built in the 19th century in the Tudor style.

General look at the playing field not zoomed in. I have been to Selly Park before, walking past this park, but this visit was my first time going in. And looking at my old photos from Raddlebarn Road of December 2014, didn't seem to have taken any photos of this park before now (I think boys were playing a football game back then?).

Another look at a goalpost with gulls on top as well as the outdoor gym equipment.

Zooming in to the outdoor gym equipment near Selly Avenue.

Pair of goalposts, gulls on the field and a lady walking over the field.

From here it is an easy walk to the University of Birmingham down the Bournbrook Road towards the Bristol Road. I then walked around the Aston Webb Boulevard (Selly Oak Bypass) towards the new Selly Oak Shopping Park. On the way saw a #Selly sign near The Pavilion at the University. From Selly Park to Selly Oak.

Here's the latest ItsYourBuild photo gallery for Three Arena Central (HMRC). The sub-cladding is complete and the silver final panels will start to appear soon. The building looks very black and dark at the moment but makes for some interesting photos.

With the curtain walling more or less complete up to level 13, attention since our last update has quickly turned to the installation of pressure plates.

All this is in preperaton for the eagerly-awaited rainscreen cladding, which should start to appear in time for our next update.
