Tuesday 2 July. 

Travelled on a double-decker bus into Birmingham to walk around, admire, and go to the Jewellery Museum for a tour of one of the old workshops.  Birmingham is one of the 3 places in Britain to be an assay center (fascinating).

A highlight of the museum was the workshop, closed as a family business in the 1970s and kept intact until established as part of the museum. An amazing insight into another era of work.
