412 Stainland

"PARKEN VERBOTEN" said the sign. The Black Brook Valley has obviously retained international connections that date back to when it produced wire for the first trans-Atlantic cable. Yet the character of the valley remains firmly part of the countryside and we had come to walk the fields that lie below the attractive village of Stainland. The name Stainland comes from Old English, meaning stony cultivated land, and standing on the rocky edge you look down on a patchwork of buttercup fields that line the meandering brook.
