Featured Project: My Route

My Route is Sampad’s community heritage project that will research and document the history around Stratford Rd in South Birmingham, from the 1940s to the present day.

The project has been supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Working with the local communities between Sparkbrook and Hall Green, the project will identify how the people, landscape and culture has changed and developed with the settlement and migration of new populations along the road.

Working in partnership with Birmingham Archives, My Route will train volunteers in heritage research skills, using oral histories, factual data collection and public donations to uncover the unique history of the road.A series of free arts & culture activities will be delivered for members of the public and several unique resources will be created that will appeal to all ages, including a new archive about the history of the road.

The website for My Route will be launched in May 2014.
