Stockfield Community Association have put forward some new plans for the locally Grade A listed 1924 Acocks Green Baptist Church Hall, corner of Alexander Road and Yardley Road, B27 6HE. (There is also a 1903 Baptist Church Hall with entrance around the corner on Alexander Road, so we are careful to make the date distinction.)
You will find the building, with clear picture here:
