View of Highfield Church from the south east - unknown date This painting shows Highfield as the rural hamlet it once was. The large, chimneyed building visible to the rear of the church is probably the original vicarage built in 1852 (this building can now be found on Cranford Way).

View of Highfield Church from the south west - unknown date This painting is odd as it shows the wall around the churchyard but not north extension to the church which was built before it. The wall was completed in 1899, the extension was completed in 1876.

View of Highfield Church from the south east - unknown date This shows Highfield from Highfield Lane, towards Portswood. It was taken after 1883 as the houses on the right do not appear on OS maps of that date. The ivy on the tower reaches almost the same point as the photograph taken in 1900.

View of Highfield Church from the south east circa 1900. The second extension, of the east end of the church was completed in 1878. This also clearly shows how narrow Highfield Lane was as it goes off between the trees to the left of the photograph.
