Digital Trail: Rowheath

Digital Trail: Rowheath

Rowheath has long been a centre for the community at Bournville after being developed into a recreation ground in 1919. 

.

In 1919 Cadbury's employed around 7500 people so needed more space to provide the sporting and recreational activities that the company wanted to. As well as providing pitches for many different sports, an athletics track and a boating and fishing lake at Rowheath, a pavilion was also built to be used for entertainment and other functions.
