  1. I believe the notice is opposite the back of Davy Lamp public House, on a wall by a window to the right of the Quinton Fish Bar.

    I hope this helps.

  2. To David Anslow,

    I should be grateful for any information about the Quinton Estate and the builder B.K.Jackson & Son Ltd. Did he build the whole of the estate and how long did it take? Bertram Kenneth Jackson (b 1906) seems to have been a small local builder although he had a son, Kenneth B. Jackson (b1935).BKJ is listed in 1932 Kelly`s Directory as a builder living at 46 Queen Street, Pelsall Wood, Walsall, which is still there.
    Do you know whether the firm still exists?

    I would appreciate your help with this enquiry.

  3. Concerning your request for information about the site of the Right of way notice.
    I can only suggest that it was somewhere on the land which is now known as the Quinton Estate.
    B K Jackson were a builders in Walsall and they began development of the estate in the early 1960’s.
    We came here in 1966 and have lived in Kempton Drive ever since. I seem to remember a similar sign posted on the shopping precinct area, I think on the end of the building where the Telephone kiosk and the Library now is. i.e the entrance way to the Co-op.
