Only eight miles from the Birmingham conurbation the country park seems a world away. Especially popular with walkers and pony trekkers today because of the sheer diversity of terrain. The hills are around 1000 feet high and, on a clear day, it is possible to see swathes of Birmingham and the Black Country, Worcestershire, Shropshire and the Welsh borders.
Don't worry if the weather's dull. The woods are perfect for taking photos
