Birmingham Guided Walk in morning and Winterbourne House and Gardens in afternoon
Organised by Jacky Eastwood                            
19 th April 2017
Two blue badge guides led us around Central Birmingham
stopping to admire the inside of the Cathedral

After lunch we travelled the short  distance to Winterbourne House and Gardens.

"Winterbourne is an Edwardian Arts & Crafts property, restored to its former splendour. One of the best surviving examples of an Edwardian arts and crafts villa garden, there are seven acres to explore and enjoy. Inside the house, exhibition rooms bring to life the history of the former owner, John and Margaret Nettlefold. " 

We saw it at Camelia and bluebell time. Lovely.
