Old Joe back with clock hands over the Christmas - New Year holidays end of 2021

The University of Birmingham campus was very quiet during the last week of 2021. Elliott caught the no 76 bus up to the Edgbaston Campus to check out Old Joe (aka Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower), now with the clock hands reinstated on all sides, and with the mechanisms working, the clock even rung / bonged while on the campus. Happy New Year 2022.

Old Joe back with clock hands over the Christmas - New Year holidays end of 2021





The University of Birmingham campus was very quiet during the last week of 2021. Elliott caught the no 76 bus up to the Edgbaston Campus to check out Old Joe (aka Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower), now with the clock hands reinstated on all sides, and with the mechanisms working, the clock even rung / bonged while on the campus. Happy New Year 2022. 


Getting off the no 76 bus on the Bristol Road in Selly Oak (Bournbrook close to the University of Birmingham), near The Goose at the OVT put. Could see Old Joe to the right near Grange Road. I headed right to the South Gate. It was the Boxing Day Bank Holiday Tuesday, 28th December 2021 (the actual Boxing Day fell on a Sunday).

The view of Old Joe (Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower), zoomed in from Bristol Road over Grange Road in Selly Oak.

Heading through the South Gate, noticed the Costa Coffee at the University of Birmingham Sport & Fitness was closed (yet to go to this Costa), then headed past the Guild of Students building towards the East Gate. Not only are the clock hands back on, but they are reading the correct time.

Near the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the East Gate, and close to Edgbaston Park Road. The campus was really quiet, not many people around.

Now on Pritchatts Road, heading past the North Gate and the Green Heart.

Usually coaches park at this semi circle, but non during the inter Christmas - New Year period.

A look at Old Joe through the gate on the left.

And through the gate on the right.

One last view of Old Joe from the Green Heart, with the Main Library and Teaching & Learning Building on the right.

dndimg alt="Old Joe" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Old Joe UoB 28122021 (8).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

Heading down to check out the progress of the rebuilding of University Station, one last view of Old Joe taken from Vincent Drive. Evergreen tree on the right looked like a Christmas tree with no decorations on it.

Restoration of Belmont Works & Construction of STEAMHouse2 - A Birmingham Gem!





An iconic city centre building which had been gutted by fire has revealed its restored façade as part of a huge £70M restoration in Birmingham’s emerging Learning Quarter.


The listed Belmont Works, built in 1899 and located on Cardigan Street within Eastside, will soon become home to STEAMhouse – a collaborative space for businesses and creatives to work together on new business ideas, concepts and creations – and Birmingham City University’s School of Computing and Digital Technology.

The 120-year-old gem of a building had amazingly stood derelict and forlorn since its devastating fire ripped the building apart in 2007.

Its façade was comprehensively rebuilt and restored, with extensions – including the building's former 27m water town – to the site’s rear, as well as a new 5-storey behind the restored building, complete with a top floor roof terrace space and glass atrium that now links with Belmont Works.

In addition to becoming BCU’s School of Computing, the buildings will contain state-of-the-art Grade A office accommodation, 5G service, laser cutting machinery, virtual reality technology, printing studios, and 3D printers.

Funding for the restoration has helped save this Birmingham gem which included funding from GBSLEP, Enterprize Zone, Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy managed by GBSLEP.

STEAMhouse is set to officially open its doors in 2022, and will first welcome businesses to the premises, as well as students looking to work on industry projects.

The Exchange opened in September 2021, and many people have had a chance to explore it since then, but Birmingham We Are's Daniel Sturley and Elliott Brown have yet to have time to visit it and go inside (other commitments, no time etc). This gallery of photos showing the renovations between March and December 2021. It was completed by the end of August 2021. It sounds like some people have had guided tours of the building. Hopefully Jonathan Bostock will get access for guided tours in 2022?

Bournville Quaker Friends Meeting House - enjoy our visit shared with you!





The purpose built Bournville Quaker Meeting House on Lindon Road, Bournville was completed in 1905 to the designs of William Alexander Harvey as part of the Bournville Village Trust, a Trust created by the Cadbury family.

Enjoy this article and photography with us.


In 1879, Cadbury's relocated their factory from central Birmingham to their new site to the south of the city, now known as Bournville Village.

Following the opening of the new factory in 1879, George Cadbury built a number of houses for key workers close to the factory.

The Bournville Village Trust was established in 1900 and the purpose built Quaker Meeting House was built in 1905 to the designs of William Alexander Harvey.

Internal changes to the meeting room carried out in 1935 included the removal of the rostrum; the replacement of a platform; and the removal of panelling within the arch of the south hall.

An extension was built in 1960 for a children's room with a smaller library and cloakrooms. This was designed by Selby Clewer, the chief architect of the Bournville Village Trust. The library was opened in 1988 to make a lobby area, and the main hall was re-roofed, internal front doors were added, and ancillary facilities were reconfigured.

You enter the House through the green doors.

dndimg alt="Bournville Quaker Friends Meeting House" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Quaker FMH 11092021 (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

As you go in to the building there is a pair of black and white portrait photographs of Dame Elizabeth Cadbury (1858 - 1951) and her husband George Cadbury (1839 - 1922).

Outside of the Friends Meeting House is a bronze bust of George and his ashes were buried there following his death.

dndimg alt="Bournville Quaker Friends Meeting House" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Quaker FMH 11092021 (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

There is also a plaque to celebrate the planting of a Cedar Tree outside the buiding on the 24th June 1948 by Elizabeth Mary Cadbury during the year of her 90th birthday. This has now grown into the tree that is wrapped with Christmas lights between November and January each year.

dndimg alt="Bournville Quaker Friends Meeting House" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Quaker FMH 11092021 (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The house is a magnificent space similar in design to Bournville Village Primary School which was also designed by architect William Alexander Harvey.

dndimg alt="Bournville Quaker Friends Meeting House" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BVT Quaker FMH 11092021 (6).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A roll of memory contains some of the Cadbury family and a number of other Quaker's who have passed away.
