A trip North


We have been away for a few days around Birmingham but due to to connection failures I am only able to upload these posts of our trip now back home. 21st century communications near a large city failed we did better near John O Groats !

I spotted a grand church tower from our campsite so decided to explore. St Mary’s Church Wythall  is near Birmingham. The church was built in 1862 by Fredrick Preedy .The landmark tower was added in 1908 by William Bidlake following a donation from a local family. The church was turned into offices in 2000 which saved it from being lost, while the church is private visitors can walk in the old graveyard.
