I took a break from cruising, spending a few weeks at King’s Orchard Marina, near Huddlesford Junction, on the Coventry Canal. My first stop after leaving there was Hopwas, and here are some pictures from a walk in Hopwas Hays Wood.

This large area of woodland is mostly deciduous, and is on the north side of the main road between Tamworth and Lichfield (A51). It should be noted that this area is used from time to time by the British Army for training, and at these times access is prohibited – indicated by red flags by day and red lights by night.
