Moseley Bog

Today we went for a walk in Moseley Bog (Birmingham). Tolkien lived nearby, as a child, and acknowledged the site as inspiration for the ancient forests in his books The hobbit and The Lord of the Ring.
The site is tiny with limited facilities; there is some parking, a board walk, lots of mud and no loos!  We walked round the site 3 times - as you can P found a puddle to splash in and a stream to paddle in.  It is certainly not worth a special day out but if you are in the area it really is a place of unexpected tranquillity in the city!
