taken 12 years ago, near to Bournville, Birmingham, Great Britain

Rowheath Pavilion and fishing Lake
Rowheath Pavilion and fishing Lake
Rowheath Pavilion was built at the behest of George Cadbury in 1924 as part of the facilities for his workers in Bournville. The facilities included sports fields, bowling greens, a lido and this fishing lake. After falling into disrepair following the sale of Cadbury's the Pavilion and many of the facilities were reopened in 1985 following a management buyout. After further financial difficulties the Pavilion is now thriving again under the auspices of the Pavilion Christian Community. See LinkExternal link
Ironically the result of all these upheavals is that this is one of the few places in the former Bournville Estate which serve alcoholic drinks - something of which George Cadbury would not have approved!
