Landing in Ladywood: New work at Edgbaston Reservoir
On a field overlooking Edgbaston Reservoir we are building a new community space for the people of Ladywood. We started work in 2020 and the we hope to have a cafe, community space and loos open by late spring, early summer 2021.
The building is just off
Selwyn Road and will
be accessible from
the path around
the reservoir. Many of you
have already seen the work.
Working in the winter mud - the building is emerging
Our contractor Ian Barney explains how much work has gone into getting the field ready to become a centre of community activity:
But that's not all - we have bolder ambitions
- A 2nd building for growing and “mucking about”
- Crops on the field, to supply local business and support local people
- An outdoor amphitheatre – a place for creativity to flourish
- A biodome – to bring together the flora of the world
