The latest issue of BBC Countryfile magazine is out with not one, but two pieces of mine!
The first is in relation to the new Geopark designation for the Black Country. Now, I’ve not been to the Black Country much, but having investigated this for BBC Countryfile magazine I can certainly testify that the Black Country is much greener than you might think!
When you think about it, it all makes sense. Such is the diversity of the geology in the Black Country, it was the perfect location for the heavy industry that reputedly gave the Black Country its name to set up there.

I’ve also got a piece in there about Mortimer Forest, on the outskirts of Ludlow.
It’s a fab place to walk and explore at this time of year, just as the trees are all turning, and there are one of two rather interesting creatures to spot, if you know what you’re looking for, and where to look.
