Walk and Talk with Ian Jelf
Tuesday 3rd July 2018
One thing you should always do in any city is to look up! And nowhere is that more true than in Birmingham where – despite the City’s (unfair) reputation for concrete and glass – many buildings have the most amazing decoration ignored by passers-by.
So come with us for an unusual “Bite Sized Birmingham”, where we find a surprising number of carved “Green Men”, classical figures, Victorian imperialism and breath-taking confidence in stone and terracotta.
As well as comfortable footwear, you might like to bring a pair of binoculars or even a camera with a telephoto lens to get even more enjoyment out of some often forgotten building details.
