Ian Cotterill will give an illustrated talk on Bournville & Letchworth (1895-1914) – similar or different?
We hope to to follow this up with a trip to Bournville and Winterbourne House on Saturday 7th July – firstly there will be a tour of Bournville village centre and have a break for the purchase of refreshments.
We shall then proceed to Winterbourne House for a buffet lunch and a cup of tea or coffee. After lunch we have a guided tour of the gardens including the botanic garden containing over 6000 different plant species.
There will also be the opportunity to visit the Edwardian Arts & Crafts house designed by Joseph Lancaster Ball a leading Birmingham architect who championed this style and which has been recreated with William Morris print wallpapers and period furnishings. (more details of Winterbourne House can be seen here: http:/www.winterbourne.org.uk/)
The cost is £46 per person which includes transport, the tours and buffet lunch.
