More information on the Stour Valley Inn on Monument Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Stour Valley Inn 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 the Stour Valley Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

Note : this is not a complete list of licensees for this pub. The dates of early licensees are sourced from trade directories, census data, electoral rolls, rate books and newspaper articles. Names taken from trade directories may be slightly inaccurate as there is some slippage from publication dates and the actual movement of people. The listing for 1951 to 1962 is complete and accurate as these names are sourced from licensing records and brewery property books. These records are hand-written and I have done my best to transcribe them accurately, though some scribbles of the clerks can be hard to determine.

"Eight people, including an elderly widow and three children, were evacuated from two Ladywood houses on Saturday when a fire in a large timber store threatened their homes. While they took shelter with neighbours, firemen prevented the blaze from spreading, though a rear bedroom and its contents in one house were damaged by water, while the rear wall of another developed a crack. The families were able to return after about an hour. and an inspection of the damaged wall was made by building surveyors. The blaze was in the covered store of B. and C. Timber Company, at the rear of the Stour Valley Inn, on the corner of Monument Road and Great Tindal Street. A passer-by saw the roof blazing and gave the alarm. The two houses whose occupants were evacuated are 3/114 and 3/112 Monument Road, the rear walls of which back on to the store. In the first house lives Mrs. Elizabeth Tonks, a 78-year-old widow, her daughter, Mrs. Ellen Phillips, and her grandson, Mr. Frank Phillips and his wife. The second house is the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas William Davies and their three young children. Police advised both families to leave and they went to a house on the opposite side of the court."
