Some history of Monument Road
More information on Monument Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Monument Road from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Monument Road. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
