During the first lockdown of 2020, Ben Waddington realised he would not be leading any walks for a while, so began writing 111 Places in Birmingham That You Shouldn’t Miss instead.
Get inside the mind of Birmingham's industrial, creative and international legacies through the places, spaces, people and buildings that many miss. Over the years, the city's shifting identity, bold planning experiments and Forward! motto have left aspects of the city's past –and present– overlooked and unknown. Collected here by researcher and tour guide Ben Waddington are the intriguing lost treasures that help you navigate and understand this 'invisible' Second City.
Ben Waddington is the director of Still Walking, a Birmingham-based festival with an annual programme of guided tours and walking events. His education is in Fine Art, a practice which informs his approach to curating and creating guided walks. He is also the city organiser for Birmingham's PechaKucha nights.
