Walk on Clent Hills

Today we went for lovely walk, in glorious sunshine, on the Clent Hills which are 10 miles out of Birmingham.

This is the view from the summit of Adam's Hill, at a height of 304 metres (997 feet). A 'toposcope', or carved stone platform showing the direction and distance of local (and distant) points of interest, sits at the top. From here it is possible to see the Black Country, the Birmingham skyline, and other features as far away as the South Shropshire Hills and the Welsh Borders.
We also enjoyed the viewpoint from the Four Stones Folly, a Victorian folly erected by a former owner of nearby Hagley Hall.
G prefered splashing in puddles :).
