Monkey Puzzle Trees, Hawkswell Rough, near Wombourne, Staffordshire
This view is taken from the public footpath which leads to Gospel End. In the foreground, remnants of the former wall round the Himley Estate, and an unexpected line of Monkey Puzzle trees. These are marked clearly as coniferous trees on my 1:25000 O.S. Pathfinder Map 912. The soil shows the redness typical of a red sandstone area (also the wall). Ploughing was taking place today. Many potatoes are grown in the area.
