A Winter Solstice Wander in Birmingham

Photo by Pete Ashton

Sunday 22nd December

Come and observe the shortest day of 2019 with a four-mile walk from Bordesley Henge to Witton Cemetery via Spaghetti Junction and the Grand Union Canal. We’ll watch the sunrise at the standing stones of Kingston Hill Park before following the canal northwards to the dramatic Witton Cemetery, a fitting spot to mark the dying of the year. Ceremonial embellishments will be provided by Hipkiss and Graney.

Meet at Bordesley Station* at 7:45am or if coming from Stirchley meet at Artefact at 7am for a taxi-share. If you’re planning on coming please email andy@videostrolls.com so we don’t leave anyone behind.

We’ll go ahead whatever the weather although we may cut things short and seek shelter if necessary. Wrap up warm!

*No trains will be operating; it’s just a handy start point.
