The church was built on a hill of stiff red marl, which turned to sticky mud in wet weather.Early historyThe town is noted for its historic architecture, which includes surviving examples of timber framed Tudor style houses and shops. The historic Solihull School dates from 1560 (although not on its present site). The red sandstone parish church of St. Alphege dates from a similar period and is a large and handsome example of English Gothic church architecture, with a traditional spire 168 feet (51 metres) high, making it visible from a great distance. It is located at the head of High Street and is a Grade I listed building. It was founded in about 1220 by Hugh de Oddingsell. A chantry chapel was also founded there by Sir William de Oddingsell in 1277 and the upper chapel in St Alphege was built for a chantry.In the build up to your vacation in Solihull, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United Kingdom trip planning app.
