Join Richard to discover a surprising walking route around the lakes, streams and canals of this historic area of Birmingham.

We tried this ramble barely six months ago, but due to covid restrictions only a few people were able to enjoy it. So we're offering it again as it was a really fascinating and enjoyable route.

This idea came about due to the enthusiasm of Spice member and conservation volunteer David Fernie who introduced me to some lesser known gems in this remarkable area. We follow a surprising belt of green spaces including a secret lake, a reservoir with no water, a picturesque reed bed, the site of a watermill that survived until the 1950's and much more besides. We will also find the Worcester - Birmingham Canal and discover the conservation area of St Nicholas Place with its historic church and medieval buildings.

We also pass through Bournville Village and see the pioneering work of the Cadbury family and perhaps smell the chocolate!

Expect around 3 hours of lovely, easy walking.

As you may be aware, the new rules from Monday 14th September say that we are now only allowed to meet in groups of up to 6 people, which on the surface suggests we need to reduce our group sizes back to 6.
