This report is the last part of a trilogy for me. In November last year I ploughed through this forum to see what I could find, fairly local and do an explore. I'd read quite a few archived reports on St Edward's which looked interesting so decided to give it a go.
When I got to Coleshil I was immediately distracted by the first building I saw which turned out to be St Mary's .Four hours later and I'd run out of time, St Edward's never got a look in so I planned a return.

It took longer than I liked to do a re visit. February this year infact but again I got distracted. This time by St Joseph's Not as good as St Mary's, pretty trashed but worth a look. Partner in tow. When we came out I had a quick look around the perimeter of St Edward's but unfortunately it looked pretty tight. We went home.


Third time lucky I returned this month and managed to get in. Slightly more of technical entry than I'm used too.;)

The Birmingham Diocesan Rescue Society for the Protection of Homeless and Friendless Catholic Children was established in 1902 with Father Hudson as its first Secretary and Administrator. Father Hudson remained in Coleshill from 1898 until 1934. During that time the work of the Rescue Society grew, in particular the children’s homes. Its expansion included St. Vincent’s, a home for working boys in Moseley Road Birmingham, St. Edwards Boys Home, St George’s and St. James’ Cottage Homes for boys and St Gerard’s hospital for children in Coleshill. St. Gerard’s was the result of Father Hudson’s vision for a purpose built infirmary, not just for the boys of St. Edwards but for those from all Catholic homes in the Diocese and the Catholic children from the workhouse hospitals. Two new schools were established in Coleshill through the Society. Father Hudson’s devotion to the children, his patience, energy and great administrative skills guided this development and the Rescue Society became known colloquially as Father Hudson’s Homes
