A team of volunteers has transplanted a meadow from Worcestershirer to Balsall Heath. This was one of seven such done on 10th July by the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country. Thanks everyone!

The meadow is between Clevedon Road and the River Rea (B12 9HD ). Beside 35 bus route and Rea Valley Cycle route.
Car parking in adjoining side streets.
