Moseley Bog, Birmingham - A hidden Gem!

Moseley Bog is situated in Moseley, Birmingham.

It is on the site of an old millpond and is made up of both wet and dry woodland together with patches of fen vegetation.

The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country now leases Moseley Bog from Birmingham City Council.

J. R. R. Tolkien lived nearby as a child, and acknowledged the site as inspiration for the ancient forests in his books The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
