Uffmoor Wood - Halesowen Walk
These attractive woods near Romsley cover over 200 acres with miles of waymarked trails to try. The shady paths are particularly lovely in the spring when there are carpets of bluebells to enjoy. There's also pretty little streams with wooden footbridges and lots of wildlife. Look out for fallow deer, foxes and a variety of birdlife as you make your way through the woods.
The woods are located very close to the splendid Clent Hills Country Park. Here you'll find miles of National Trust devised footpaths with magnificent views over the Cotswolds, Shropshire Hills and Welsh borders from the high points.
About a mile east of the woods you'll find the Illey Way. This dismantled railway line will take you through the countryside to Waseley Hills Country Park and Woodgate near Halesowen.
