From Spaghetti Junction to town via Nechells and Alum Rock. History and anecdotes along the way. Hear about Murder, Blackmail, the Battle of Saltley Gate. See wildlife and industrial architecture. Hear about Boy Racers, Custard, Tea and the Birmingham Proof House.
Meet on the Car Park of the Armada Pub by Spaghetti Junction. Buses from town are the 65, 67 or any that go up Lichfield Rd. Short walk from Gravelly Hill train station.
Trainers should be fine although there might be some puddles or a bit of muddiness. About 4-5 miles but it will be slow and gentle.
We'll end up at the Rose Villa Tavern in time for Sunday Lunch!
