Bunkers Hill Wood, Stourbridge

Bunkers Hill Wood is a beautiful stretch of woodland to the West of Stourbridge which incredibly has only been open to the public since 1996, when it was purchased by the Woodland Trust with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Walking around Bunkers Hill Wood you get the feeling that you are in the overgrown grounds of some delapidated stately home, but your'e not, it's just a small but highly atmospheric stretch of woodland right on the edge of the Norton suburbs to the west of Stourbridge.

This is an easy walk that can be carried out in little more than a couple of hours, starting from Mary Stevens park, although you can actually park right outside the woods if you prefer. Please note that cycling is unfortunately not allowed in the woods.
