In 2014 the Environment Agency will begin improvements to the flood defences in Witton and Perry Barr. MADE is working alongside them to involve artists and communities in this work and to explore the cultural heritage of the area up until the present day.
Artists and historians will be exploring the Tame and the area around, and the individual journeys through Witton and Perry Barr of residents past and present. There will be lots going on, including events, workshops, printed work and exhibitions for the whole community to get involved in.

Photographs of Witton
Looking towards Witton in about the 1950s.
The Aston Villa ground is behind and Serpentine Road is that nearest. During the late Victorian period a funfair was held near this site.
