Hi Tom, Hi all, Wave I had no idea about the Sewell of Sewall Highway, but the first record is of Sewall Ave, that started from the Ansty Rd, & went as far as the present round-about at Wyken Grange Rd. That was after 1929. It is shown on Rob's scanned maps on here, 1936. Wave

Hi Phil As a youngster had a mild argument with my cousin when he saw my spelling (Sewall) of the road where we both lived. He insisted thpon the 'e' version as he said the road was named after Anna Sewell the writer of Black Beauty. I stuck to my spelling but had to admit that at least one of the road signs used 'e'. I think it may have been the one nearest Ansty Road. To get to the section of Sewall Highway that ended at Bell Green Road one would have to take a left into Dennis Road and drive through Stoke Heath estate, right onto Blackberry Lane then left back onto Sewall. The allotments covered the area now occupied by Thorney Road etc. and across Sewall. In my just-published biography of my childhood the allotments and The Dump (always given upper case initials in grateful memory) get mentioned quite extensively!

Hi Tom, Wave I well remember the allotments that divided Sewall Highway in half. I grew up at 285, from 1947 to 1968. My friend Stuart still lives just a few doors down. A couple of years ago, I called in on him one day & asked if he was coming out to play. He did & we went down the Devon. Cheers
