Don't forget

Please dress appropriately for the weather. If there has been rain in the days prior to the event, then it is likely to be muddy.

If you are planning to attend a guided walk, please allow time to walk the 20 minutes from the car park to the event site in time for the start of your walk.

We will have a picnic area at the site, and a portable toilet will be available to use.

When and where

  • Date: Saturday 7 August, 11am-3pm.
  • Price: Free, but donations to support the management of our woodlands are welcome.
  • Location: This woodland oasis in the midst of pasture land is brimming with birdlife and roamed by deer, as well as attracting a diverse range of butterflies and moths. It has some fascinating flora too, including the rare violet helleborine. Just a short distance from Halesowen, it’s easily accessible and a great place to visit.
  • Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome.
  • Access: The event route is on our waymarked trail ‘Woodland Wander’ which is a mixture of wide gravel and grassy earth tracks. Narrow in places with stretches of uneven ground. It can be muddy when wet. The walk from Romsley car park is unsurfaced, grass or mud tracks, contains four stiles, narrow foot bridges, steps, and one long moderate slope.
  • Parking: Uffmoor car park will be reserved on the day for those with mobility issues or pushchairs. Please park in Romsley in the playing field/ scout hut car park, 66 St. Kenelm’s Road, Romsley, B62 0PG. Follow the arrows into Uffmoor Wood. This is about a 20-minute walk, so please allow time for that if attending one of our guided walks.
