Deritend – Walking through Birmingham history
Well known Birmingham historian, broadcaster and author, Carl Chinn, takes us on a walk along Deritend High Street.
It’s a short in distance but long in history. Here Carl is at the medieval crossroads of thriving market town of early Birmingham where the half-timbered black and white Old Crown pub has somehow survived the spread of the industrial city. And, beneath our feet, hidden from view and forgotten is the River Rea alongside which Deritend grew up in the shadow of the Bullring the parish church of St Marin. Today, this is a vibrant part of the city’s culture and business centred around the iconic Custard Factory.
