This area of The Shire Country Park runs along the left hand side of the River Cole between Green Lane and the Stratford Rd. It is cared for by volunteers of the Sarehole Environmental Action Team who also care for the stretch of river between Sarehole Mill and Green Rd. The river along this stretch is interesting as it flows over the Green Rd Ford, one of the very few still existing in Birmingham. It also has two sets of stepping stones across the river.
Volunteers have been busy coppicing and dead hedging as well as planting and caring for a small orchard on the banks of the river.
