Aston History Walk
Aston’s history is generally overlooked by the draw of Birmingham, its much bigger neighbour. Aston has many listed buildings and is at the centre of the country’s canals, railways and motorway system. This guided walk will pass 14 listed buildings. The oldest was constructed in 1480 and can trace its origins back to the 9th century.
A highlight will be walking under Spaghetti Junction where we will talk about the evolution of the site since Roman Times.
