Uffmoor Wood - Halesowen Walk

1 miles (1.5 km)

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.

Path in Uffmoor Wood This is one of the main paths in the wood, and starts from the car park. The Woodland Trust on their website describe the wood as "mostly the site is planted ancient woodland, dominated by stands of conifers and mixed broadleaves with birch regeneration. A few isolated pockets of semi-natural ancient woodland can still be found, along the edges of watercourses. Regular coppicing in the past has created a distinct woodland structure, still evident in the southeast corner though most of the site is now dominated by plantation stands".
