To many people, the West Midlands equals Birmingham and its outlying towns. Yet nothing could be further from urbanisation than the empty fields of Staffordshire and the gently undulating countryside around Stratford in Warwickshire. This is an area that repays a wander into its backwaters many times over.

Staffordshire is a beautiful rural county of scenic contrast, stretching from the gritstone hills on the edge of the Peak District National Park, to the flood plains of the river Trent, to the edge of the West Midlands conurbation. The area includes the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the National Forest, together with the Forest of Mercia, a community forest.
