Sutton Coldfield Local History Research Group
Sutton Coldfield has an interesting history well documented by an extensive collection of primary sources housed in Sutton Coldfield Library. Members of the Research Group have access to this material, and enjoy studying it to find out about aspects of the history of the Royal Town. Completed research is now to be found on this website.
Members who wish to do research meet any Tuesday (2.00-4.30 pm) at Sutton Library, coming as often as they wish to pursue their research topic, with help from experienced members of the Group and library staff. All members receive regular emails with details of our occasional field meetings, public lectures or issues that affect the group.
For further details, see Join Us.

Visit to Erasmus Darwin House and Garden
Visit on Wednesday, 13th October, 2021.
It seems that an army of volunteers, passionate about Erasmus Darwin, were there to welcome us today and guide us around the house. This genius of a man was a successful Doctor, an accomplished Scientist, a noted Inventor, a celebrated Poet and, probably most important of all, a wonderful family man. He was known to have fathered at least 14 children!
