The Lozells and Handsworth Heritage Trail showcases 10 architectural heritage sites in the inner-city areas of Lozells and Handsworth. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

 
We worked in partnership with South & City College Birmingham to provide training for local people to become volunteer Tour Guides for the Trail. Guided tours around the trail were delivered as part of the project and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
 
The tour takes in some of the finest local Georgian and Victorian architecture, a convent design by Augustus Pugin, a church tower built over 1000 years ago, and one of the best examples of a Victorian park in the UK. Tours begin at Soho House, former home of the industrialist Matthew Boulton, and end on the Soho Road, the vibrant heart of Indian culture in Birmingham. The sidebar to the left of this page lists all of the sites individually.
There is a virtual tour (viewed on our Videos page), where interviews with people associated with the sites were recorded by volunteer Media students at Birmingham City University.
 
The Trail attracted attention from local and national media and was featured on BBC Midlands Today and BBC Radio WM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk9O6EhurvA
