West Midlands Metro tram in and out of Town Hall Tram Stop on the last weekend of the Birmingham FCM (December 2019)

The all blue West Midlands Metro trams are now running every day between Library and Wolverhampton St George's. Monday's to Saturday's every 6 minutes, and every 15 minutes on Sunday's. Heading up Pinfold Street as a tram heads down from Victoria Square. Also a pair of trams stopping at the new Town Hall Tram Stop. On the last weekend of the Frankfurt Christmas Market.

West Midlands Metro tram in and out of Town Hall Tram Stop on the last weekend of the Birmingham FCM (December 2019)





The all blue West Midlands Metro trams are now running every day between Library and Wolverhampton St George's. Monday's to Saturday's every 6 minutes, and every 15 minutes on Sunday's. Heading up Pinfold Street as a tram heads down from Victoria Square. Also a pair of trams stopping at the new Town Hall Tram Stop. On the last weekend of the Frankfurt Christmas Market.


Starting with West Midlands Metro tram 19 at Grand Central Tram Stop, on the early evening of Wednesday 18th December 2019. The tram with the 20 Years livery (1999 - 2019). Passing here again on Saturday 21st December 2019, it was a bit too crowded for me. Noisy football fans coming out of the Burlington Arcade, and protesters walking past with placards on the opposite platform.

Heading up Pinfold Street nad I have finally managed to get some photos of a tram heading down the hill. West Midlands Metro tram 21 in Just Eat livery, now all blue, but still with the red adverts.

dndimg alt="Tram 21" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Just Eat tram 21 Pinfold St (Dec 2019) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The last weekend of the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market, it closes on Monday 23rd December 2019.

dndimg alt="Tram 21" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Just Eat tram 21 Pinfold St (Dec 2019) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

You can see the Big Brum clocktower from down here which is behind the Council House. It is completely pedestrianised up here.

dndimg alt="Tram 21" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Just Eat tram 21 Pinfold St (Dec 2019) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Tram 21 turns left from Pinfold Street onto Stephenson Street, passing La Galleria and Yorks Cafe in the Guildhall Buildings.

dndimg alt="Tram 21" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Just Eat tram 21 Pinfold St (Dec 2019) (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Heading to the end of Paradise Street, as far as pedestrians are supposed to go, saw tram 29 with the reindeer name Cupid coming round Paradise Circus. With Centenary Square behind. Including the Birmingham Big Wheel and ice rink at Ice Skate Birmingham. The REP, Library of Birmingham, Hall of Memory and Baskerville House. HSBC UK at Arena Central on the left, while the site of One Centenary Way to the right.

dndimg alt="Tram 29" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Pedestrians are not supposed to walk beyond here, but some have ignoring the signs (can they not read?). Tram 29 continues to go round the corner with HSBC UK and the Birmingham Big Wheel seen behind.

dndimg alt="Tram 29" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Tram 29 Cupid heads onto Paradise Street. As a man with shopping walks beyond the point of no return for pedestrians. Behind you can still see the Big Wheel, Library, Hall of Memory and Baskerville House. Only trams are allowed to enter Paradise Street here. Not cars.

dndimg alt="Tram 29" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Heading past the Town Hall as tram 29 arrives at Town Hall Tram Stop. The Christmas tree at the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market is visible to the right.

dndimg alt="Tram 29" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Tram 22 Dasher arrives at platform 1 for Birmingham (Library) while tram 29 Cupid comes into platform 2, bound for Wolverhampton (St George's).

dndimg alt="Tram 29 and 22" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A view not possible a few years ago. Big Brum at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery with the Birmingham Town Hall. Seen from Paradise Street while the pair of trams were at Town Hall Tram Stop. And as a bonus, the core of 103 Colmore Row. Paradise Birmingham is to the left. That was where Fletchers Walk and the old Birmingham Conservatoire used to be until a few years ago. And there used to be a road that was part of Paradise Circus that is now long gone.

dndimg alt="Tram 29 and 22" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (6).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Another new view from the tram stop is of Colmore Gate and the dome of Birmingham Cathedral. Never expected to get those with a pair of West Midlands Metro blue trams.

dndimg alt="Tram 29 and 22" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Tram 22 Dasher continues it's journey towards Centenary Square. You can see it's destination in the background, the Library of Birmingham. The Alpha Tower is usually visible from the end of Paradise Street.

dndimg alt="Tram 22" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (8).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Tram 29 seen leaving Town Hall Tram Stop. Going through Victoria Square, then down Pinfold Street. As visitors to the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market pass in and out of the square.

dndimg alt="Tram 29" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Town Hall Tram Stop trams 29 22 (Dec 2019) (9).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

I will add to this post as it was not published on the 23rd December 2019.

The Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market was dismantled between the 24th and 25th December 2019, and trams were running apart from on Christmas Day of course.

On Boxing Day, the 26th December 2019, at least two trams were broken down meaning no trams could go beyond Bull Street until they were removed.

On a miserable wet Boxing Day, tram 30 had broken down at Corporation Street. It was on the platform bound for Wolverhampton, but couldn't go anywhere.

dndimg alt="Tram 30" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/WMM Boxing Day (Dec 2019) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Heading round to Bull Street Tram Stop, saw tram 28 Jasper Carrott with no destination on the board. This one on the Wolverhampton bound platform. Was it broken down to / not in service?

dndimg alt="Tram 28" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/WMM Boxing Day (Dec 2019) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Then tram 22 arrived heading to Birmingham. But I'm not sure if it headed down to Corporation Street, or if all the passengers got off here, and it returned in the other direction.

dndimg alt="Tram 28 and 22" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/WMM Boxing Day (Dec 2019) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Back to normal on the 27th December 2019. Saw at least one tram from Victoria Square.

After popping through the concourse at Birmingham New Street Station, I saw tram 18 in the Just Eat livery arriving. I saw the pantograph rising up and connecting to the overhead wires when it got to the tram stop from the newly opened extension.

dndimg alt="Tram 18" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/WMM 18 Grand Central Tram Stop (Dec 2019).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Saw tram 34 arriving at Grand Central Tram Stop, but tram 18 had started to depart before I was able to get two trams in one shot, so I took this one instead. Looks like the pantograph had been lowered, before it started the journey up to Town Hall and Library.

dndimg alt="Tram 34" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/WMM 34 Grand Central Tram Stop (Dec 2019).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Merry Christmas 2019 and a Happy New Year 2020. Oh and Happy Hanukkah as well! (Will all be over when this gets published). More tram posts and photos in 2020. I'm hoping to ride the tram again perhaps all the way to Wolverhampton.

Fox Hollies Park through the years along the Westley Brook

Fox Hollies Park is located on the Shirley Road between Acocks Green and Hall Green, and stretches as far as Gospel Lane. This park is quite small and has the Westley Brook flowing through it. Playgrounds at both ends and a small lake as well. To the west end is close to Fox Hollies Leisure Centre (but is not part of the park). Paths for walks, that can also be enjoyed by dog walkers too.

Fox Hollies Park through the years along the Westley Brook





Fox Hollies Park is located on the Shirley Road between Acocks Green and Hall Green, and stretches as far as Gospel Lane. This park is quite small and has the Westley Brook flowing through it. Playgrounds at both ends and a small lake as well. To the west end is close to Fox Hollies Leisure Centre (but is not part of the park). Paths for walks, that can also be enjoyed by dog walkers too.


Fox Hollies Park

This park is located on the Shirley Road in Acocks Green, close to Hall Green. It stretches along the Westley Brook towards Gospel Lane, which isn't too far from Gospel Oak and Olton in Solihull on the Warwick Road. Other nearby roads surrounding the park include Pool Farm Road, Oakhurst Road and Severne Road. There is two playgrounds, one close to the Shirley Road entrance, the other near Gospel Lane. There is also a small lake / pond where you will find many of the usual bird species to be found in a park like this.

Most of the time I hardly see many people walking around this park. Maybe the odd person walking a dog. Assume that cyclists may pass through here. Or occasionally families using the playground in decent weather. Then again I've only been through it in the winter.

2010

These views of Fox Hollies Park from Shirley Road during December 2010. A snowy walk up Shirley Road and a look at the park. I did not enter the park at this time.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (1).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

The playground covered in snow. Three people on a morning jog through the snow covered park.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (2).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

Another view of the playground.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (3).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

The old Birmingham City Council - Fox Hollies Park sign. It was already looking dirty when it was covered in snow.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (4).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

Entrance to the park from Shirley Road. These old railings survived until at least 2017 or 2018 when they were replaced by the Council all the way around the park.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (5).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

This from close to the entrance of Fox Hollies Leisure Centre. Apparently the Yardley Constituency Office is also there. The office for the Birmingham Yardley MP is now on Yardley Road in Acocks Green (Jess Phillips MP from 2015 to present). John Hemming used be the MP from 2005 to 2015.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (6).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

View of the park from the opposite side of the Shirley Road. A Council advert about visiting Santa in his Grotto.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (7).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

The furthest end of the park to the right on Shirley Road.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park snow (Dec 2010) (8).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

2017

I didn't really do an actual walk through Fox Hollies Park until January 2017. Getting in on the Shirley Road I walked as far as the Gospel Lane exit. Leaves on the lawn looking like it was still autumn.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Passing the empty playground which is close to the Shirley Road entrance.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The path curving around to the left.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Straight ahead on the path. This more or less is close to Oakhurst Road (which is to the right of here on the other side of the trees and houses).

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Path up to the trees.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Distant houses probably on Pool Farm Road.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (6).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Two paths in two different directions.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The path up to Gospel Lane. The second playground is to the far right of here.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (January 2017).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A look at the pond / lake. Bit hard to get decent views of it, trees in the way.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Jan 2017) (8).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

2018

Another walk round Fox Hollies Park, this time during December 2018. Slightly different route this time. And the Council was installing new wooden railings and bollards throughout the park. This footbridge crossing the Westley Brook.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (1) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The Wesley Brook from one side.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (2) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

And from the other side.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (3) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

One of the new Welcome to Fox Hollies Park wooden sign and entrance with metal bars. This was on Pool Farm Road.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (4) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

I wasn't quite finished with Fox Hollies Park, so I walked up to the second entrance on Pool Farm Road. Still had the old Council sign on the right.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (5) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A close up look at the slide in the playground close to Gospel Lane.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (6) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Back of the new exit / entrance to Gospel Lane.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (7) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

And the front side with Welcome to Fox Hollies Park. As you can see it's near the playground at the Gospel Lane end. From here you can catch the no 4A bus to Birmingham.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park (Dec 2018) (8) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

2019

On Christmas Eve Eve in December 2019, I was walking up Shirley Road and remembered that they were installing the new railings here the year before. Seem to recall hoping over the old railings, but they hadn't finished the new ones. A year on and it is complete.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park Shirley Rd (Dec 2019) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

As well as the new Welcome to Fox Hollies Park wooden entrance sign, the Council has also installed a new sign on the left.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park Shirley Rd (Dec 2019) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The new railings are slightly higher than the old ones, tries to make the park look nice and modern.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park Shirley Rd (Dec 2019) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Hopefully other City parks will get new railings like these. But it would be nice for more people to use Fox Hollies Park. It's just a quiet out of the way park, that other than locals, people wouldn't really be aware of.

dndimg alt="Fox Hollies Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Fox Hollies Park Shirley Rd (Dec 2019) (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Merry Christmas 2019 and a Happy New Year 2020. Oh and Happy Hanukkah (will all be over when this gets published). More park posts to come in 2020. Look out for Witton Lakes Park, Brookvale Park and the Oaklands Recreation Ground.

The Empty Streets of Birmingham on Christmas Day 2019

Being autistic has its advantages when it comes to having a special interest, mine is the city and photography. I went out at about midday into the city centre to see if I could get another set of 'empty city' photos like I did in 2011, and great medicine for my mental health it was! Here's a gallery of what I got, they had to be black & white, 28 photos in this post.
