St Laurence Church in Northfield claims to be one of the oldest churches in the Birmingham area. The Normans between 1000-20 c built the original Tower and Nave. All that remains now is the base of the Tower, a doorway and the pillars at the Chancel opening. Around 1200-1214 the Chancel was added. Over 100 years later the South Aisle was added. In the 17th century the Porch was built and was used by the Church council for meetings.August 5th 1946'Arthur and I went sketching to Northfield in dull weather'.
