This DVD provides a journey of history and discovery around the 'Outer Circle' Birmingham ring road.


For almost one hundred years the No. 11 outer circle buses have travelled through Birmingham's suburbs.


This DVD takes you on a 25 mile anti-clockwise journey through the following places:


  • Hall Green;
  • Acocks Green;
  • Yardley;
  • Stechford;
  • Erdington;
  • Stockland Green;
  • Witton;
  • Perry Barr;
  • Handsworth;
  • Winson Green;
  • Bearwood;
  • Harborne;
  • Selly Oak;
  • Bournville;
  • Cotteridge; and
  • Kings Heath.


The DVD takes the form of a gentle trip 'Round the Circle', stopping regularly to illustrate points of history, or to explore places of interest near to the route.


Many a passenger on the No. 11 must have wondered, "Where did the name Acocks Green come from?" or "What is that church spire I can see?" This narrated DVD answers these and other questions as it takes an unhurried look around the city suburbs.


This is an archive DVD that we continue to sell because of its popularity.


This is a brand new shrink-wrapped DVD which we, as the copyright holder and producer of the DVD, duplicated and which we sell on our site.
