Bournville Village Primary School - enjoy our visit shared with you!





The Birmingham Heritage Week open days were held in Bournville on Saturday 11th September 2021 at about 11 venues. Elliott Brown popped to three venues that day, starting with the Bournville Village Primary School (formerly Bournville Junior School). The school opened in 1906, and celebrated their centenary in 2006. The Carillon was not open, but you could hear the bells ringing.


Although the Bournville Carillon was not open to the public on Saturday 11th September, you could hear it ringing when getting off the bus on Linden Road. However Bournville Village Primary School was open with an entrance on Woodbrooke Road.

You enter through the doors in the entrance hallway.

The main school hall was designed by William Alexander Harvey and is a truly magnificent space.

Just look at the stained glass window unveiled in 2006 on the centenary of the school opening in 1906. It was unveiled by HRH the Duke of Gloucester and is stunning!

Bournville Village Primary has some great values. 

dndimg alt="Bournville Village Primary School" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Prim Sch int 11092021 (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

There is a black and white photo portrait of the schools founder George Cadbury (1839 - 1922).

dndimg alt="Bournville Village Primary School" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Prim Sch int 11092021 (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

There was also a black and white portrait photo of his wife, Dame Elizabeth Cadbury (1858 - 1951). George married his second wife Elizabeth in 1888 and they celebrated their silver wedding anniversary in 1913. A tablet was placed in the main school hall in 1913 by the residents of Bournville to celebrate the occasion. Sadly George died in 1922, and Elizabeth was a widow for 29 years (until her own death in 1951).

dndimg alt="Bournville Village Primary School" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Prim Sch int 11092021 (8).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

Through some of the locked doors, you can see corridors to classrooms, and also see the classrooms from the main hall.

The story behind the new BT Tower logo

During 2021, Birmingham We Are's regular photographers Elliott Brown and Daniel Sturley have occasionally been getting updates, everytime BT put up a "T" or a "B". Since at least March 2021, one side had a "T". The "B" didn't go up until August 2021 due to nesting peregrine falcons.

The story behind the new BT Tower logo





During 2021, Birmingham We Are's regular photographers Elliott Brown and Daniel Sturley have occasionally been getting updates, everytime BT put up a "T" or a "B". Since at least March 2021, one side had a "T". The "B" didn't go up until August 2021 due to nesting peregrine falcons.


Between February and August 2021, the BT Tower in Birmingham on Lionel Street finally got the the new BT logos attached on both sides of the building.

The "T" on one side together with a circle was put up between February and March 2021. The "B" and the other "T" didn't go up until late August 2021.  This was due to nesting peregrine falcons.

The photography below was taken by Birmingham We Are's regular contributors Daniel Sturley and Elliott Brown.

 

6th February 2021

"Not for everyone" - workers spotted abseiling from the top of the BT Tower.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/IMG_5993b_BTTW.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Daniel Sturley.

 

24th February 2021

From Edgbaston Reservoir, it wasn't particularly clear to see what they were doing up on the BT Tower but you could spot the BT logo on Three Snowhill from this vantage point.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower Edg Res (Feb 2021) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

2nd March 2021

Pins are put in place for the circle of the logo and the "T" of BT. The "B" pins can just be seen.

21st March 2021

First blue circle of the logo and a "T" goes into place on one side of the building.

3rd April 2021

View from the train going past Birmingham Snow Hill Station. This side of the building at the time had a complete blue circle, but only visible pins for the "BT" logo.

17th April 2021

Still only a lone "T" can be seen from Hill Street near Birmingham New Street Station. With peregrine falcons nesting at the top, BT engineers couldn't return until late August.

21st April 2021

A close up view from the bottom of the BT Tower from Lionel Street. It's a long way up.

16th May 2021

Here's a view up the tower from Lionel Street in the Jewellery Quarter, near Ludgate Hill. It would be another three months before they got back up to finish the BT logos.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower (May 2021) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown..

 

21st June 2021

View of the BT Tower from St Paul's Square with St Paul's Church. At the time, this side of the BT Tower still just had the blue circle.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/St Pauls JQ (Jun 2021) (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

14th July 2021

The view of the BT Tower from Ladywood Middleway. Still just the lone "T" from the Ladywood view.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower Lwd Mway 14072021.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

23rd July 2021

This view is as you come off the M6 motorway, Junction 6 at Spaghetti Junction  (Gravelly Hill Interchange) onto the Aston Expressway, A38(M).  On the skyline you could see The Mercian and the BT Tower (still without a visible "BT" at this point).

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Mercian AXSJ 23072021 (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

27th July 2021

A view of the BT Tower from the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal near Ludgate Hill in the Jewellery Quarter.

7th August 2021

Scaffolding goes up at the top of the BT Tower and there is now visible ropes from there to the bottom of the tower. Work finally resumes to finish replacing the BT Tower's logo.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/IMG_3839b_BTTW.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Daniel Sturley.

 

13th August 2021

The Library of Birmingham reopens the Discovery Terrace (Level 3) and Secret Garden (Level 7) to visitors. It was now possible to see the BT Tower from both terraces. This view taken from the Secret Garden. The last time you would see the "T Tower" before the end of the month with Three Snowhill (which already had it's "BT" logos).

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower LoB 13082021 (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

30th August 2021

In the last weeks of August, engineers returned to the BT Tower to attach the remaining letters to both sides of the building. Some of the scaffolding above had also been removed. This view taken from Great Charles Street Queensway.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower 30082021 (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

4th September 2021

A quick late afternoon visit to the Secret Garden at the Library of Birmingham, just before closing provides an opportunity to capture the BT Tower again from up high, now with the completed new logo.

dndimg alt="BT Tower" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BT Tower 04092021 (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Photography by Elliott Brown.

 

11th September 2021

A view from the Isaac Tongue Junction in Northfield at Bell Hill. Near the A38 (Sir Herbert Austin Way and Bristol Road South) of The Bank (tower 2), The Mercian and the BT Tower. A distance of about 6 and a half miles for this photo. The new BT logo only visible on a zoom camera (not with the naked eye from that distance).

Gratitude was an event held by Wild in Art in Chamberlain Square, at Paradise Birmingham, which ran from the 20th to 30th August 2021. It has now moved on to Manchester and will then move on to Edinburgh and London. It pays tribute to NHS staff and keyworkers during the pandemic.

There were 51 "Lockdown Oscars" displayed in Chamberlain Square close to the Chamberlain Memorial.

The display had mirrors around it and it was curated by creative ambassador Dame Zandra Rhodes.

In Autumn 2021, the sculptures will be auctioned with proceeds going to NHS Charities Together.

Wesleyan was one of the main sponsors of the event.

A Short Walk along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal Between Newhall and Livery Street

One of the most interesting stretches of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal can be found in the City Centre between the Newhall Street Bridge and the Livery Street Rail Bridge, unless you are somewhat claustrophobic! Mind your head and enjoy a great urbanscape away from the bustle of the Jewellery Quarter.

A gallery of photos along this route on 27th July is in the full article.

A Short Walk along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal Between Newhall and Livery Street





One of the most interesting stretches of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal can be found in the City Centre between the Newhall Street Bridge and the Livery Street Rail Bridge, unless you are somewhat claustrophobic! Mind your head and enjoy a great urbanscape away from the bustle of the Jewellery Quarter.

A gallery of photos along this route on 27th July is in the full article.


Starting at the Newhall Street Bridge and tunnel and heading east will take you down to where the canal passes under Brindley House. From here you eventually reach the tiny tunnel under the Livery Street Road Bridge and immediately into the cavernous Livery Street Rail Bridge Tunnel. A spiral staircase will take you back up onto Livery Street.

To start the trail, take the steps down from Newhall Street to the canal towpath. Alternatively join the canal from Fleet Street by crossing the bridge opposite the Michell's and Butler building. 

 

Looking down the tunnel under the Newhall Street Bridge.

Looking back the other way (west).

Here's the canal as you emerge underneath Brindley House.

Here we look back at the tunnel under Ludgate Hill.

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/IMG_2283b_CANL.jpg" />

 

This is the much smaller Livery Street Road tunnel which sits directly alongside the cavernous rail tunnel.

Here we looki back from the Liver Street road tunnel.

Now we emerge into the massive rail tunnel.
