- Himley Hall Park, Dudley, DY3 4DF
Himley Hall, situated between Kingswinford and Wombourne, started life in the 18th century when a medieval manor house on the site belonging to the Earl of Dudley was demolished to make way for a great Palladian mansion. The 180 acres of grounds were designed by Capability Brown to include a great lake fed by a series of waterfalls from a higher chain of smaller pools.
Today visitors can enjoy a stroll through the fine park land and a lakeside walk. Tours of the hall are also available.
