Nature

(1 mile, 20 minutes walk) Beautiful mix of heathland and forest, as well as Cannock Lake. First recorded by recorded by William Yates in 1775, Shoal Hill Common has been managed by the Shoal Hill Common Joint Committee since 1991 using practices such as a programme of bracken, tree and scrub control and heather rejuvenation via rotational cutting. These practices help to reinstate the open heathland for which Staffordshire is so famous. The aim is to ensure both the survival of a landscape and valuable wildlife habitat which is in major decline, and to ensure the diverse number of plants and animals survive both today and for future generations of local people.

(15 miles, 36 minutes drive) In 1937 Geoffrey Mander MP did something remarkable - he persuaded the National Trust to accept a house that was just 50 years old. The local paint manufacturer and Liberal MP had been left the timber-framed house by his father Theodore. Taking inspiration from a lecture on 'the House Beautiful' by Oscar Wilde, Theodore and his wife Flora had decorated its interiors with the designs of William Morris and his Arts and Crafts contemporaries. This house of the Aesthetic Movement was, by 1937, a relic of an out of fashion era. Yet, so complete was the design that it was worthy of preservation. Having given the house to the Trust, Geoffrey and his second wife Rosalie became its live-in curators, opening the house to the public and adding to its contents. In particular they added a remarkable collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Rossetti, Burne-Jones and their followers.

(48.8 miles, 57 minutes drive) Experience one thousand years of jaw-dropping history at Warwick Castle; great battles, ancient myths, spellbinding tales, pampered princesses, heroic knights, bird of prey displays, jousting, and the world's largest functioning siege engine - the mighty trebuchet - and much more! Warwick Castle is a medieval castle developed from a wooden fort, originally built by William the Conqueror during 1068. The original wooden motte-and-bailey castle was rebuilt in stone during the 12th century. During the Hundred Years War, the facade opposite the town was refortified, resulting in one of the most recognisable examples of 14th-century military architecture. It was used as a stronghold until the early 17th century, when it was granted to Sir Fulke Greville by James I in 1604. Greville converted it to a country house and it was owned by the Greville family, who became Earls of Warwick in 1759, until 1978.
