Small area located in Moseley featuring a bog, ponds, tree forts, hills and much more. We visited here with my Wife and 1 y/o with a pram. The wooden paths made it very easy for us to travel through. A must visit for everyone.

The perfect place to go and hide from the world, touching trunks and spiralling off in imagination. Entirely possible to feel you are a million miles from a city. Some simply stunning trunks.

One of this place's selling points is that it was where Tolkien grew up, and it is certainly a nice place. Hard to tell how much it influenced him, but there are some nice trees, including one specially called out as a possible Ent. It...More

We spent about 4 hours in the Bog exploring the various trails. There are a surprising amount of interesting woodworks and plenty of useful wooden pathways. It's quite enchanting, even ignoring the Tolkien connection.
