    I am going to be working in Dudley for about a few days and thought whilst I was travelling so far I would try and do a bit of work for a few days and a bit of photography at the same time. I am into Landscape photography but where can I stay that is photogenic, has good internet signal, and is roughly an hourish from Dudley ????

    You could try the cave houses of Kinver Edge in nearby Stourbridge.

    I was born in Birmingham and lived most of my life there but I'm afraid that I don't really know great deal about north of the city, getting south of Birmingham from Dudley is a real pain.

    You will be within an hour of lots of incredible countryside but if your are a stranger to Urban landscapes then Dudley, Wolverhampton, Birmingham all offer you a wonderful opportunity to take the sort of photographs you like to take wit a slightly different "spin". Birmingham also has an array of wonderful "urban" parks that are amazing, take an early morning or evening stroll around, Sutton Park or Canon Hill Park (the later being 2 or 3 miles from the Centre of Birmingham), the Lickey hills are a wonderful memory of childhood but probably a shade over an hour from Dudley depending on the time and method of your travel.

    The Midlands are a famed home of industry and incredibly interesting, so maybe go and see what it really is rather than leaving for pretty landscapes, says the man that left Brum to become a farmer in rural Hungary Wink

    I live near to dudley and would stay somewhere on the A449 in between Stourbridge and Wombourne/Penn there are plenty of hotels or large pubs with accommodation. You can then visit places like Himley Hall, Baggeridge woods/pools or out towards Telford/Ironbridge, there is also Black Country Museum which is a must for visitors to dudley and we have a zoo and a very large canal network.

    hope this helps

    I live in Bewdley, on the edge of the Wyre Forest. It's about 40 minutes from Dudley ( southwards). There's the The Severn Valley Railway which runs from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth in Shropshire. Lots of nice steam train shots etc. Bewdley itself is a lovely Georgian town on the banks of the River Severn.

    Hi Steve, just googled Bewdley and what a pretty town how lucky are you! I shall add it to my list of places I must visit.

    Thank you very much for your suggestion and if you see a strange lass with a camera next week it could be me!
