Kings Heath was originally part of Kings Norton,
Worcestershire, becoming a separate parish in 1863. When Birmingham extended
its boundaries in 1911 it took both parishes in as part of the Greater

on Heathfield Road on the third Wednesday of each month (excluding July and
August), starting at 7.15pm and ending by 8.45pm.
Membership of the society is £15.00 per year. Visitors pay
£3.00 per meeting.
Light refreshments are available at meetings for a small charge.
