Picturesque view of the Black Country

posted in: Observations | 1

To encourage us and new members that mapping the black country is not just about grim housing estates, brownfield and derelict areas and industrial sites that are barred by security gates, here is a view to stimulate us that beauty can be found in this region.

Cobb’s Engine House stands in the midst of a large nature reserve with extensive views over the region. It is situated at the confluence of a number of canals and above the entrance to the Netherton tunnel (2.5 miles long) which was the last canal tunnel to be built in Britain. There are still lots of cycle paths and footpaths to be surveyed here.
