A Walk around Medieval Yardley
Start from Blakesley Hall, Blakesley Road, Yardley, Birmingham B25 8RN
Join experts from the Birmingham and Warwickshire Archaeological Society in a leisurely 2.5 mile stroll around the village of Yardley. Discover the hidden history of the area including two medieval moats that once surrounded manor houses, ridges remaining from medieval ploughing, and the historic buildings of old Yardley including (exterior only) St Edburgha’s church and the timber-framed old grammar school.
The walk will be led by Dr Mike Hodder, former Birmingham City Archaeologist, and Sue Whitehouse, who devised the Society’s ‘See it for Free’ programme, a web-based invitation to explore the archaeological sites of Birmingham and Warwickshire – for free. This walk will take place twice during the day.
