Geocache Description:


Romsley is a village and civil parish in the Bromsgrove District of Worcestershire, on the east side of the Clent Hills about 4 miles south of Halesowen.
The nave of St. Kenelm's church continues directly into the chancel, both are from the 12th century and built of red sandstone.
A 15th-century tower is of greenish sandstone, and the church has a timber porch. The chancel is built over a crypt that once contained the shrine of St Kenelm.
Hammer Hill House in Romsley, built in 1923, was designed by Clough Williams-Ellis.
