We Just Read…. New shell installed in Shell Corner 40 years after original went missing:

“FORTY years after the historic monument which gave Halesowen’s Shell Corner its name vanished, a replacement has finally been installed.”

A First World War artillery shell took pride of place in the area from the 1920s until the 1970s when it went missing during roadworks – never to be seen again.

Local artists Cliff Collis and Colin Burchill created a design – which has been painted onto the shell by the art department at Halesowen College – commemorating members of the armed forces.
