September 7th – Redditch gets a lot of stick – not least from me – for it’s awful road system and urban design. There are some very surprising bits, however, like the church in the centre of town. It’s huge, dramatic and beautifully complimented by the surrounding market and gardens. The Church Green are is a reminder of a Redditch long since passed, of the old town before the development and Birmingham overspill. I love this building.
