Saltwells Nature Reserve is located in the Black Country area of the United Kingdom, and boasts an array of botanical species and zoological habitats. Saltwells has the largest sculpture trail in the Black Country area with works co-designed by local school children, and built by artist Robot Cossey.
I grew up and attended school in the Sandwell district during the 1980’s and I visited the nature reserve many times. This place is now a local issue of concern to me since I received news of plans to build luxury private housing in the middle of the nature reserve, near enough the last slice of cherished woodland and wildlife in the area.
I decided to speak up, write a song, write letters, share the news, make posters and get involved. Please visit the following links to discover more.
