Sot's Hole

Sots Hole has over 5 hectares of some of the oldest woodland in Sandwell. The largely wet woodland supports a variety of tree species. A stream flows through the site and a small pool has recently been created.

A surfaced path leads through the Reserve, linking up with other paths leading into Sandwell Valley Country Park. For further information contact 0121 588 6154 or 0121 569 3070.

Wildlife

A variety of woodland bird species can be found, and the wet nature of the woodland supports plants such as water horsetail and marsh thistle. Sots Hole looks particularly spectacular in Spring, when much of the drier part of the wood is carpeted with bluebells.
