Listed by Spice West Midlands


Another of our favourite “Urban Rambles” using the hidden green spaces of the Birmingham Greenways Map. It’s a triangular route which follows 3 waterways; Birmingham & Worcester Canal, River Rea and Bourn Brook.

It’s an easy and flat 6 - 7 miles made up of canal towpath, riverside parkland and some urban roads. It’s surprisingly green for much of the route.

The first couple of miles is all green, as we follow the River Rea the length of Cannon Hill Park that continues into other stretches of parkland all the way to Stirchley and on to Kings Norton. We then turn north along the Birmingham – Worcester Canal passing Bournville (where we will pause to smell the chocolate!) and over two aqueducts before leaving the canal at Birmingham University for an urban section following Bourn Brook back to Cannon Hill Park and MAC (where we can finish at the café or bar as you wish). We expect to be back around 3.30pm.

It's another fascinating journey through Birmingham, so please join us!
