About this walk
Rough wood is made up of a series of pools in the middle of the oldest and largest woodland in Walsall (Rough wood represents about 10% of the oak woodland within the West Midlands). Its a great place to go for a wander to lose yourself in nature for a while - the old oaks and lovely sunny clearings are full of wildlife, from nesting woodland birds, as well as toads, frogs, two species of newt, and lots of woodland insects. The site is separated from Bentley Haye (to the south) by the Wyrley and Essington Canal. Here at Countryside Services we work with British Waterways to survey the aquatic plants in the canal each summer.

2 years agoGreat flat, woodlands, family dog walk. Canal lovely and clear with abundant wildlife. Could have done with lots of litter bins. Highly recommended.
a year agoLovely place to walk, had enough enclosed paths to walk off the lead peacefully and a bigger field to play ball. Easy to find with convenient parking.
