Grave Walk at St Nicolas, Kings Norton – 9th November

St Nicolas, Kings Norton

Grave Walk with Steve Wright on Saturday November 9th
On the day before Remembrance Sunday why not join the Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery as we explore the history of St Nicolas’ Graveyard in Kings Norton?
Meet 11am at the Lych Gate of St. Nicolas Place, Kings Norton Green. The walk will last about an hour, depending on numbers, and questions. Please come appropriately dressed – and just turn up.   No charge!
NB.This coincides with a Farmer’s Market day; the market usually has a number of stalls with hot food and drinks.  We believe parking in the pub car park is free on market days, but please check.

We need your support – and it won’t cost much (possibly just a stamp!)
