Today’s Friday photo is of one of the of glacial erratic boulders in Cotteridge park. Cotteridge park was one of the many parks created in the early 20th century for the health and wellbeing of the inhabitants of Birmingham. There are a great number of these glacial boulders in the area, one mentioned in a previous Friday photo is located next to The Great Stone Inn, Northfield. It is very interesting to think these boulders travelled all the way from North Wales during the ice age. Recently, there has been heritage lottery funded activities in the park concerning the boulders, with a view to inform residents of their history and make them safer for the future.
