Tolkien and Two Towers, Ladywood, Birmingham - Did you know?

DID YOU KNOW? ... J. R. R. Tolkien lived in Edgbaston in his later childhood and it is thought that his inspiration for the 'Two Towers' was from being able to see both Perrot's Folly and the Waterworks Tower in Ladywood nearby. This is still contested andit is also believed that 'Old Joe' at Birmingham University was influential as he lived in Hall Green during his early childhood. Tolkien liked to explore his local area including Sarehole Mill, Moseley Bog and Lickey Hills, maybe also inspiring his tales of ‘Middle-earth’.

Old Joe at University of Birmingham - Did you know?

DID YOU KNOW? ... The Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower at University of Birmingham is the tallest free-standing clock tower in the world at 100 metres and can be seen from miles away around the city. It is known locally as ‘Old Joe’. Students can walk through the base when moving around the campus but are superstitious to do so when the bell is chiming on the hour. The fear, it is said, is that this could result in them failing their degree.

Nelson at the Bullring in Birmingham - Did you know?

The statue of Horatio Lord Nelson in the Bullring, by Royal Academy of the Arts member Richard Westmacott Jr. was erected in 1809 as part of the Golden Jubilee of George III. The statue originally stood on a marble base that was replaced when the monument was moved out of the way of the new inner ring road in 1958. It now stands closer to where it was from 1809-1958 on a Portland stone plinth and is once again a main feature of the shopping centre.

In 1849 it’s grounds were used as a temporary exhibition of the city’s manufacturing and its wares. One of the visitors was Prince Albert. He was so impressed, it is said that the experience inspired his creation of the Great Exhibition of 1851. A permanent exhibition facility, Bingley Hall, was built in 1850 and stood on the site until 1984 when it burnt down.
