A walk back through time along the Champions Trail of the Lickey Hills

May 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Sunday 8 May – 10.30 to 12.30

A free guided walk for all the family
The history of the Earth is written in the rocks beneath your feet.
Your guides will take you back almost 500 million years to an ancient shoreline, when Britain lay in the southern hemisphere. They will explore the evidence for the convulsions the rocks suffered as Britain collided with North America, and show you pebbles washed by rivers from France and deposited in a desert only 250 million years ago.

Congregate at the Lickey Hills Country Park Visitor Centre, Warren Ln, Rednal, Birmingham B45 8ER. Meet in time for a 10.30 start. No booking necessary. The walk is about 1.5 miles and may be rough and muddy in places.
