KINGS NORTON , is an area of Birmingham, England, formerly in the county of Worcestershire. It lies six and a half miles south-southwest of the city centre of Birmingham.

St Nicolas Church, Kings Norton, dates back to the early 13th century, although earlier churches may have existed on this site. The spire was built sometime between 1446 and 1475. Much of the Norman building was demolished in the 14th century when a new nave, both aisles and the chancel arch were constructed. Most of the south aisle was re-built in the 17th century, while a much steeper roof was constructed in the 17th century. The church parish was was formalised in 1846.[1] More restorations took place in 1863 (Ewan Christian) and 1871 (W. J. Hopkins). Author of The Railway Series including Thomas the Tank Engine, the Revd W. V. Awdry, was curate here from 1940 to 1946.
