But venture not too far from the City Centre and just look at what's on the City's doorstep. Birmingham has so many Gems to enjoy and so much to offer. Take the article for a selection of wonderful photos from Chris Fletcher.

Hey Birmingham, look! All of this is on our doorstep





Most people when you say Birmingham will think of a major City in the process of even greater growth, with construction underway almost everywhere you look. But venture not too far from the City Centre and just look at what's on the City's doorstep. Birmingham has so many Gems to enjoy and so much to offer. Take the article for a selection of wonderful photos from Chris Fletcher. 


This selection of wonderful photographs were taken by Chris Fletcher throughout 2017 and they go to show the variety of great walks, green spaces and countryside available for those who take a short drive or, in some cases, even a short walk, from the centre of Birmingham.
