historic site

This is a circular walk around the large limestone outcrop known as the Wrens Nest in Dudley. It starts at the car park on Wrens Hill Road and follows footpaths around the site. The site itself is a former limestone quarry that has since been recovered by nature. The walk offers some excellent views of limestone formations and outcrops and passes through broadleaved woodland. You may also be able to find fossils on the site, which you can take home with you. There are lots of context boards detailing the history of the area, which goes back 420 million years! This walk offers great views of several interesting geological formations on the site and also fantastic views across Dudley and the surrounding areas. There are no stiles on the site but there are quite a few flights of steps, only some of which have handrails and there are a few cut-throughs with a step. Some of the paths are well maintained while others are less so. Some paths will be muddy and have uneven steps. The route is very well signposted throughout - look for the yellow trilobite symbol (it looks a bit like a woodlouse).
