It’s been another busy month for the Erratics Project!

We attended two events, worked on trails 5 (Three Hills Challenge), 6 (Romsley, Clent and Bromsgrove) and the Frankley Timeline Trail and completed path clearance at Frankley Hill.

We were delighted to join the Friends of Balaam’s Wood at their Easter Fun Day in Frankley.  Our dinosaur egg activity was a welcome addition to the Easter egg hunt!

Later in the month we joined a number of local community groups to celebrate Earth Day at Weoley Castle Square.

Julie has completed a fantastic compilation of elements of our social history research entitled ‘The Remarkable Reverend Henry W. Crosskey, the Erratic Blocks Committee and the Crosskey Collection of Glacial Erratic Specimens’.  It is a wonderful summary of Crosskey’s contribution to our understanding of glacial erratics and the evolution of the science of glaciology during the late 19th century.  Please follow the link to access the article:

We are now focussing on the completion of trail 5, the interpretation panels and our accessible boulders leaflet.
