Harborne Walkway – Then and Now
Join Roundhouse Birmingham this Heritage Week for a guided walking tour exploring the Harborne Walkway.
We’ll start at the Roundhouse, and head towards the Harborne Walkway, uncovering the vital role it played in Birmingham’s growth.
What was once a busy passenger and freight line with up to 30 trains each-way each-day, is now a green haven for both wildlife and people.
We’ll discover evidence of its use then as a busy, short railway that transported beer and toys and how it came to be a popular recreational trail.
On our way back from the walkway we’ll take a walk around Edgbaston Reservoir’s wildlife and heritage and with a bit of luck, we’ll experience one of Birmingham’s greatest sunsets.
As we complete the latter parts of our walk, it’ll start to get dark so please bring a torch and warm clothing.
There is no on-site parking at the Roundhouse. The nearest car park is Arena Birmingham on Sheepcote Street, or there is some on-street parking in the streets around the building.
