Moseley Bog and Joy's Wood Local Nature Reserve - Coldbath Brook

This is Moseley Bog and Joy's Wood Local Nature Reserve in Moseley.

 

JRR Tolkien lived near here as a child. It might have been the inspiration for the ancient forests in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

 

I accessed the bog from Yardley Wood Road.

 

A walk around Moseley Bog.

 

They have new level paths around, making it easier to get around, especially the wooden paths.

 

Passing Coldbath Brook.

 

The path splits into two here.
