Co-founder of Our Town Story. If you have any questions about the site, or wish to provide feedback, please visit the Admin forum and post in the appropriate place - we'll do our best to help you out as quickly as we can!
We really want Our Town Story to be an album for your old photos, to fill in the gaps in the history books of our villages, towns and cities. We would also love for those pictures to be able to help others - for instance by using reminiscence therapy in treating dementia .
We're still a work in progress, and we appreciate all suggestions and observations!

This iteration of St Martin's Church in Tipton was known locally as the 'pepperpot' (for obvious reasons!), and was opened in 1795, closing in the 1960s.
In the mid-2000s, the building was converted into a private home, and featured on the Channel 4 show Grand Designs. The upper level and dome had gone by this time, but were recreated in glass in the converted dwelling.
Hint: Drag the orange pegman to see the Streetview image...
