Weetslade Country Park


Weetslade Country Park is located between Wide Open and Dudley, at the junction B1319 /A189. It was officially opened as Weetslade Country Park by environmentalist David Bellamy on the 17th of June 2006.[1] The park was developed on the former site of Weetslade Colliery and it's abandoned spoil heaps, involving a major scheme to landscape the area and develop new wildlife habitats.
