I’m announcing the Spring 2012 season of my public walking.
So, what's new?
Well, I'm re-running the "Ghosts of Old Sutton Coldfield" walk on the evening of Sunday 18 March. That's Mothering Sunday, so I reasoned that an evening was probably a better time to do a walk that day, as many of you will no doubt be "occupied" during the day!
There are two NEW walks in Birmingham City Centre, one (on Saturday 14 April 2012) looking at Crime and Punishment through the ages and the other (on Easter Monday) using pictures to show how the City has changed and changed again.

22 April 2012), including a lot of off-roading on lesser-known canals as well as some super old buildings.
