Handsworth and Lozells heritage tour launched

A new heritage trail has been launched in Handsworth and Lozells to highlight and promote the history of the areas.

Often associated with gang crime, shootings and riots, organisers Legacy WM said it wants to shine a positive light on the two Birmingham suburbs.

The tour, by volunteers, visits the Victorian Handsworth Park and St Mary's Church and nine Georgian houses.

Organiser Aftab Rahman said: "I want people from all over the world to come and visit here."
