Scriber's Lane Ford on the Cole, Hall Green, 1931
This photograph of the ford at Scriber's Lane in Hall Green was taken in 1931. At this time access to the ford by road was still possible. In present times the approaches to the ford by road are blocked by a row of sturdy pillars at either end, presumably after many cars didn't make it all the way across, though it is still possible to cross the footbridge. The area now is greatly overshadowed by trees, and forms part of the Cole Valley.
