Until after the first World War, Yardley remained largely
unaffected by industrial and housing developments taking place elsewhere and a
rural landscape of lanes, farms and country mansions is still within living
memory. Many people remember happy days wandering in the countryside towards
Sheldon and down towards the River Cole. Yardley Village is a conservation area,
and walking through it is like entering a vanished world.
