Green Harborne

Anyone who tries to tell you Birmingham and it's suburbs are not nice places to live has never been here, or never here recently.

The pictures in the above gallery were all taken in June 2011 on hour walks from my home near the Green Man pub. Each walk took me an hour including stopping to take the photos and I amble along. Power walkers would probably do each of them in 45 minutes or less (allowing for road crossings etc).

These are but a few parts of Harborne and I will be doing more walking (and taking photos where I can) as time and other pressures allow.

To be honest I had forgotten how nice my home area is and it took a nudge from a far away friend to get me to do the walks and take the pictures, so let me present my home - Harborne, definitely a green and pleasant land.
