I took some shots into the sun which isn’t always a very good idea.
Before West Bromwich existed there was Bromwich, which was a small settlement at the top of Sandwell Valley. The remains of very early agriculture have been found in Sandwell Valley and it is the site of a medieval Benedictine priory too. I went to take photos on the bridleway that runs along the river.
