The Roundabout Appreciation Society (RAS) praised the "quirky" roundabout in Truro, which features hedgehogs named Cecile, Patricia, Denzil and Kizzy.
The RAS also highlighted "beautiful" and "magnificent" roundabouts in Birmingham, Goole and Swindon.
The top examples will feature in the society's 2020 calendar.

Some fresh, sharp images of the city would be a nice update to the page, and would look good to other people taking an interest in Birmingham. Obviously this is of minimal importance, but maybe we could collectively decide on some images that show the beauty of Brum to update the page with.

These are the images currently repping the city on Wiki. (On a side note, looking at the wiki pages of the other large cities in the UK, we are slacking! )



Apart from an up-to-date picture of the skyline, perhaps something like the new Centenary Square and its surroundings could replace the photo of the LoB, the image of St Philips could be updated to one of the cathedral with the 103 Colmore row core behind, the photo of St Martins & the Bullring could go for a new cityscape, like the emerging Broad St skyline. Or any other suggestions!

If anyone wants any of their photos to go on the wiki page, post them as a reply to this and we can decide which ones go on, then I'll update the Wikipedia page to have them on!

Thank you for this, if nobody has posted anything over the next day or so, I'll nominate some photos myself.

Some great looking shots on here, particularly of recent. Many thanks to all those who've supplied photos so far.

Just to remind people, the thread is about the whole of the Greater Birmingham/West Midlands area, not just Birmingham City Centre so get those photos in of the city's suburbs and other local towns too if you've got the time to do so.
