Hobbs Quarry Nature Reserve is a window on the past. The quarry face was once a coral reef and there are plenty of fossils embodied in the rock face. A leaflet is available from the post office in Longhope and is well worth getting. Bird lovers will find the reserve full of interest.

This is a great walk for the more abled walker as climbs are quite steep in places. Once you have made your way to the top of Blasidon, Huntly and May Hill's there are fantastic views of the River Severn, the hair pin bend and Gloucester. Make sure you go on a good dry day as the views are much better but also the path through Huntley wood is also for horses, it was very mucky under foot when we did the walk yesterday. When you get to Hobbs Quarry it is well worth the stop to search for fossils. My two children came up trumps finding lots of shell fossils.
