Virtual Midland Red Day at Wythall Transport Museum

Bank Holiday Monday is Virtual Midland Red Day at Wythall Transport Museum.

“With Coronavirus still controlling public events we are sadly unable to hold the planned Midland Red Day at Wythall on Monday May 25th, so to give loyal enthusiasts, museum visitors and members some compensation we have decided at short notice to hold the Midland Red Day virtually on Facebook.

We will be posting a variety photos and videos from previous events throughout the day as well as photos of current Midland Red vehicles. There will also be a Virtual Ride on a preserved Midland Red bus – hopefully our 1940 SON, GHA 337.

Visiting vehicles are welcome, buses of a different colour or from your favourite fleet. Visitors are invited to post a picture from 10am on the day.  Let us all see a picture of your favourite Midland Red bus from the past or a bus that you would like to see at a future Wythall event.

We hope to see you at Wythall Facebook on Bank Holiday Monday, at least the rain can’t stop us!”

Local Listed Buildings

“Local listed buildings can be found using the Historic England web site map search here.

Clicking on the triangles on the map brings up details and a link to “View the List Entry” which describes the building. People can then walk or cycle to see the buildings and could photograph or draw them.

My recommendation is Edward Road Baptist Church, 228 Edward Road Balsall Heath B12 9LY, which is just down Edward Road from Moseley Swimming Baths.”
