August and September 2022
Project work during August focussed on the completion of Trail 7 – Boulders by Bike – and the preparation of the temporary exhibition at The Lapworth Museum. We also held a Family Fun Day at The Lapworth – Ice Age Explorers, which was very well attended.
On 10th September, we were delighted to join the team at Rowheath Pavilion for Bournville Heritage Open Day. It was a lovely day, and through our promotion of ‘Rowheath’s Missing Boulder’ (contact us for further information!) we were fortunate to generate considerable public interest and feedback.
Our Trail 7 Launch, which was based at Cannon Hill Park, was also held in September. We had a gazebo in the park, and two of our cycle volunteers led a guided ride of the trail. This was fully booked, so we plan a second guided tour later in the year.
On September 14th we held the opening of the temporary exhibition at The Lapworth – Birmingham’s Boulders. Designer Antony and Lapworth staff John and Lizzy have done a fantastic job of presenting the project and sharing the fantastic research done into the history of the boulders by our volunteers. We’d encourage as many people as possible to visit.

Work during the next few months will focus on finalising boulder movements and placement, the Frankley Timeline Trail and volunteer training including first aid. Please contact us for further information or if you’d like to be involved.
