Birmingham and its surrounds are truly a place of contrast, from the urban gritty reality of the Back to Backs and the Roundhouse to the open countryside and rolling hills at Clent.

Roundhouse Birmingham

The Roundhouse is a hidden gem at the heart of Birmingham's canal networks. A nineteenth century stables and stores built for the Birmingham Corporation. We, together with the Canal & River Trust, will be restoring it as a hub for walkers and cyclists thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and all those who play the National Lottery.
