Acocks Green Heritage Trail

August 31st, 2016

Update

We had a very enjoyable walk around the village.  There are further walks planned: See the Acocks Green BID site It may also be possible to arrange modified walks, covering the boards not covered on our walk (We covered only the boards in the village which are boards 1-4)

Have you seen these boards around Acocks Green Village yet?

They are part of the eight boards which form Acocks Green’s new  History Trail   Learn about the rich History of Acocks Green and its different sights and buildings.  Anyone can do the ‘trail’, and as the link explains here there are quite a few different ways of doing it, from working through the board details from the comfort of your own armchair, to walking the trail by yourself, to joining an organised walk.

Acocks Green Focus Group will be doing a modified version of the trail, walking the Warwick Road/Shopping Centre/’Village’ part only on Friday 2nd September at 7 pm.  Meet outside Aldi.  This is for Acocks Green Focus Group members, but anyone else interested is welcome to join us.

At the end of the walk we will gather for a short time at Acocks Green Methodist Church (The Hopkins Room) for coffee and biscuits and to complete a feedback form on the walk.

      Hi Andy, Glad you like it. We are doing our bit to support. The credit has to go to the work of Mike Byrne of Acocks Green History Society, and the support of Jon Morris of Fox Hollies Neighbourhood Forum/Acocks Green Focus Group for work in securing in the Heritage Lottery grant.
