The Big Climb - a Memory of Lickey.
During the 1950s many children from Birmingham and surrounding areas suffered with TB and chest complaints. I can remember the doctor prescribed that I should have sun ray treatment twice a week and climb the Lickey Steps once a week. Climbing these steps was really hard going, coughing and feeling breathless and with legs like jelly, but as the months went by the climb became easier, my health returned. As a teenager I would gladly climb the Lickeys and the Malvern hills.
I loved the view from the top of the Lickeys. I left the area when I got married over 40 years ago but often think of the Lickeys.
