Beautiful parks, woods, lakes, meadows and rivers.....and lots of trees!!! Ok, I live in redditch and think it is a lovely town. Great roads system (once you get to know it a bit) good transport links including train station, buses and taxis. Multi screen cinema. Sports stadium. Swiming pools (maybe not the most thrilling but fine for a swim!) Sites of historic importance like Bordesley Abbey museum. Loads of places of interest eg Arrow Valley lake visitors centre.
