From Dale End to Dirty End // Steve Wright

Meet: the Bronze Bull sculpture, Rotunda Square B2 4PA
Despite Birmingham’s city centre development there is much to be gleaned from existing buildings and streets. For the ‘no longer with us’, your imagination will provide the pictures as you learn about some of the buildings that influenced Birmingham over 500 years and the people and events that also played their part.
We’ll take a gentle stroll from Dale End to Deritend forensically uncovering clues to our city’s past and learning how to see it in a different way.
A proud Yorkshireman, and now adopted Brummie, Steve has a longstanding interest in history and has written and spoken on local history for several years.
He has added a history twist to local community projects and inspired children and adults to see their community in a different way.
His booklet, With Guns & Drums: Civil War Birmingham 1642-1645, is now in its sixth edition and it is the chapter on Birmingham in 1642 which inspired him to create a walk in the area between Dale End and Deritend.
