Friday photo blog

This weeks the Friday photo features Junction House which is Grade II listed and dates back to 1796. It was a tollhouse and still to this day has a board on the front of the house showing how much people had to pay. Its in a lovely spot where the Worcester and Birmingham Canal meets the Stratford Upon Avon Canal and is very peaceful place for walks. Recommend it as a good starting point for a heritage trail around the area.

I took this photography several months ago and loved the reflection of the trees and Junction house in the canal water.

    We held a Birmingham Canals and Countryside Festival for three years around Kings Norton Junction , and placed the Toll Board in front of the house. We still have copies of the Lifford Water Triangle Orienteering Trail, with other research on the Rea Valley Heritage at the Cannon Hill People’s Park Information Centre.
