The great outdoors on my doorstep – Welcome to Cotwall End Valley

As I love the great outdoors anyway, Cotwall End Valley is in effect, my own great outdoors.

It is, as its name suggests, a valley.

It’s outside of the urban Black Country area, with Sedgley, Ruiton and Gornal beyond the eastern ridge, so it’s rural.

As a country boy, as opposed to being a townie, that suits me perfectly.

Bobs brook runs along the lowest point of the valley.
