Up the killer steps she goes
Up the killer steps she goes
Jacob's Ladder is in Baggeridge Country Park near Sedgley, Dudley and Wolverhampton.

That this waymarked trail is in the grounds of a former coal mine is evident from the colour of what passes for soil. Pinky, an attractive and cheerful Chinese - I think - runner said she was training for an organised 10km cross-country run here "for funny people" in mid November. Six miles and finishing with the "killer steps" she said. An internet search found the run referred to as the "suicide six". Plenty rave about it: LinkExternal link
Baggeridge Country Park
Baggeridge Country Park is an attractive area of countryside near Dudley and Wolverhampton. It was formerly the Baggeridge Colliery. Together with part of the original Himley Estate of the Earls of Dudley, the whole site has been transformed into 150 acres of attractive country park, including woodland, lakes, and open grassed areas. It has waymarked walks, cycle trails, and enclosed children's play areas. It is very popular with dog walkers.
