Our former chairman Michael Bird has written a history of the Midland Area of the Ramblers' Association, which was the forerunner of the City of Birmingham Group. It was published in celebration of the Ramblers' 75th Birthday in 2010. You can download it below.The Midland Area of The Ramblers’ Association, 1930-1987, by Michael Bird
The dates don't quite add up, it would seem, but as Mike himself points out, "The first thing that must be put on record is that Midland Area predates the Ramblers' Association by five years! Midland Area was a direct descendant of the Midland Federation of Ramblers which, in turn, owed its formation in 1930 to the Institute Ramblers in Birmingham".
