Oldbury Rock Shelters (Cave / Rock Shelter)

After studying all the previous posts I decided to attempt to locate these two sites.

On Tuesday this week we made the climb from the car park using the recommmended route but losing our bearings we had to give up the search.

On checking other sites and using my car Tomtom in longtitude/ latitude mode we set out again.

I realise I made an elementary mistake which was mentioned and went on the wrong path.

We found both sites quite easily and on the rock dwelling on the path from Oldbury Lane my sat nav was out by only 50 yards which I found amazing.

Well worth the climb but I have to say I did not feel any atmosphere at the dwellings but other obviously have because of the evidence left behind.
