This is a remarkable achievement as the park is situated just 7 miles (11 km) from the centre of Birmingham, the UK's second largest city. Seldom is such a large expanse of varied "rural" habitat found so close to the heart of a major city. Standing in the middle of Sutton Park, it is hard for a visitor to believe that the Park is surrounded on all sides by suburban sprawl.'

'A walk through Cuckoo's Nook and the Dingle nature reserve will take you through two completely different habitats, created by two different types of soil. The same walk will also transport you across 60 million years of geological time. That's because the reserve lies over a geological fault line, where on one side, coal measures lie near the surface, and on the other, limestone lies near the surface. This has a direct effect on the plant life that you'll find above the soil.'

'A long distance path using existing public rights of way to give a circular tour around our county' Alert 'The Trail was the outcome of efforts by Herefordshire Council, Advantage West Midlands, the European Union and The Countryside Agency to enrich the rural economies of the towns and villages en route. Sadly Herefordshire Council has failed to make any effort to waymark the route or tackle a long series of obstacles. The path is blocked by cereals, oil seed rape, overgrown and broken stiles, and many of the signs are broken.' [Wikipedia 1 September 2017]
