Event description

Description

The distinctive letterboxes of the Jewellery Quarter were forged in the Georgian era, as secure portals for precious metals and stones. Two hundred years later they remain an iconic detail of this unique industrial landscape. I want to share what I have learned about the Letterboxes, and the craftsmen who created everything from whistles to fabulous jewels and everything in-between.

The tour is a circular walk of about 2 miles and takes approximately 2 hours. We start and finish outside Tesco by the Chamberlin clock. The terrain is mainly flat but good mobility is required as we will be in an urban landscape.

If you’re interested in Birmingham, its history and architecture, this is for you.
