We had a fabulous trip today into Birmingham, and we are now moored at Granville Street Wharf, Birmingham. The mailbox is in front of and to the right of us.
We did stop at Bournville for a while and wandered around part of the Bournville village. We passed on Cadbury World as it would have cost over £27 for the 2 of us!
Our temporary mooring at Bourneville with the Cadbury factory in the background.
Staff sales shop at Cadbury’s.
Bournville Baths again.
Cadbury’s factory as seen across the playing fields.
Quakers church, the Cadbury family were Quakers.
The shops at the Green.
The Bournville Rest House, now the visitor centre in the middle of the Green.
The Carillon on top of the school. There are 48 bells of varying sizes out in the open underneath the weathered copper roof. The largest bell weighs 7.5tonnes.
Because we did not bother with the Cadbury experience we went into the paper shop and bought a bar of Cadbury Milk each. I know how to have a good time .
