Lovely day out at this hidden nature reserve that we never knew existed. Needs to be advertised more. Great for bikes.

What a hidden gem right in the middle of the Black Country. We visited especially to see the wonderful display of bluebells. There are several trails to follow and is worth visiting at any time of the year, to listen to the birds singing.

This area, and the bit around Mushroom Green, have always struck me as a lovely place to go for a Sunday afternoon walk. This has been a long winter, and it's lovely now that summer is here to be able to re-explore these paths.
