The Wilderness was created out of adversity as the result of thousands of tonnes of soil being dumped illegally at Warley Woods in 2004. Luckily the soil contained lots of interesting plants and was a haven for insects. The Trust has made the site safe, added paths and a board walk for visitors. This leaflet will help a visitor explore some of the highlights of The Wilderness.  A full list of plants and insects found by Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust can be shared on request.
