Pebble Mill flood – photos by Marie Phillips











Photo by Marie Phillips, no reproduction without permission.

In summer 1987 a massive water pipe ruptured in Selly Park and flooded the playing field, BBC Club, front car park and part of the Pershore Road.

The Club was out of action for several months, whilst the building dried out.  The Club transferred back to the 2nd floor of the Pebble Mill office block whilst the refurbishment took place.

The photo shows the flooded playing fields, with the Club building visible in the bottom left hand corner, and the Pershore Road behind.  It was taken from the main office block.

  1. I seem to recall it happened just before a major test match at Edgbaston and it meant that work had be completed very quickly to avoid huge traffic jams.

  2. My car was totally inundated in the front car park. I was out to lunch and returned to find it mysteriously alone and waterlogged! It stank for weeks.
