Blog 58 - Birmingham Jewellery QuarterSaturday with @igersBirmingham for a instameet around the Jewellery Quarter this was to celebrate its architectural heritage they had teamed up with the JQBID and the Townscape Heritage project
Heritage Townscape is a 3-year long project that is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim of the project is in part to document and preserve the architectural heritage of the Jewellery Quarter. The images taken on the instameet and shared to the event hashtag will help them with this documenting process.
Started at St Pauls Church and did a walk around 10 different buildings like the Argent Centre built 1862 as a pen factory, Alabaster & Wilson founded in 1887 producing fine jewellery for over 130 years and photograph the buildings along the way and ended up at the pub for much needed brandy to warm up.
Considering I live not far from hear its always amazes me that I never visited great architecture to be seen and some real Birmingham history.
Is an welcoming community of photographers who have a passion for photography and the local Birmingham community would certainly recommend you follow any level of photography welcome to join on meet ups.
