Many thanks to the staff and residents for taking the time to see me.
There is some pretty fascinating history in the local area with the Perrotts Folly and Waterworks Tower which were the inspiration for Tolkien’s twin towers in Lord of the Rings. Outside Edgwood Court is a mosaic which represents the local area and each mosaic piece was added by the residents on the estate so it is truly a communal project.
I learnt that West Midlands Police Sergeant Neil Anderton (now retired) was so respected by the community that they named their garden after him and Anderton Gardens is a very well tended and popular spot with the residents. A lovely accolade from a very appreciative community to lovely man.
