St Peter and St Paul
A grant to fund repairs to 130 year old lead rainwater troughs on the roof to prevent rain from overflowing into the building. The sandstone tower which is adjacent to a public footpath lost masonry and was also to be repaired. One of Birmingham's iconic buildings and the first significant structure passed by motorists entering Birmingham from the M6 (Spaghetti Junction) on the A38. The oldest surviving major structure is the tower of 1480. The 1480 church was enlarged in 1878 to make a parish church of cathedral proportions. The building has many high quality memorials dating from 1360 to the 1950s. It has associations with many important people including William Shakespeare, John Rogers (Bible translator and protestant martyr) and Joseph Ansell, the brewer. It has a peal of 12 bells.
