  • DUNK67's Profile Photo

    by DUNK67 Updated May 4, 2004

    Favorite thing: Hindlip is a couple of minutes drive from junction 6 of the M5 in the county of Worcestershire. The most notable thing in Hindlip is Hindlip Hall which is clearly seen on top of the hill. The hall is home to the West Mercia Police Force and contains the control centre for the Force, training centre and Black Museum. Although the museum isn`t open to the public I visited as part of a college careers day. It houses some very macarbre things like body parts in jars and photos of murder victims.There are also exhibitions of confiscated weapons ranging from home made to purpose built.

    http://www.westmercia.police.uk/

    Fondest memory: Driving round the duel carriage way at 110miles per hour in a Police training BMW and also going off road in a Police Range Rover.

    by Galahad Updated Oct 21, 2004

    This farm sells its own apples and pears in season. Over the last few years the market has changed and it can no longer survive on this alone and so has sold other local produce of very high quality.

    What to buy: Apples and Pears in season - you will spoilt for choice of varieties not in the supermarket.

    What to pay: Less than supermarkets for the same products
