Topic - Walking the hills of the Black Country

Matt_79 - on 24 Jan 2013
My area of Sedgley, West Midlands, has one of a long chain of hills that run south-eastwards across the Black Country region. The first hill, Sedgley Beacon, is a 777ft. limestone ridge and the ridge continues to Dudley and the Wrens Nest and Castle Hill are part of the same ride.

A second ridge starts fairly close to Dudley Castle and runs down to Rowley Regis. This is a dolerite ridge known as the Rowley Hills and it includes Turner's Hill, the highest point in the Black Country.

Are some members familiar with the hills in my region? I wasn't sure if there were many people from the Midlands on the forum. Although the hills are of course located in an urban area, they are still very scenic and the views are fantastic (as far north as Shining Tor and as far south as the Cotswolds).
