The Tame, the Rea, the Cole, the Blythe… there are so many natural waterways in Birmingham, and so much green space around them!

All the little rivers and streams in Birmingham and Solihull and half those in the Black Country flow together in Ladywell Reserve at Hams Hall near Coleshill. Large parts of them are culverted in brick channels hidden behind buildings, but there are also broad ribbons of grassland and woodland alongside them, stretching for miles and miles. I love exploring these green corridors and want to share my experience of that with you in words.

I would also like to invite you to contribute ….
