Kinver Edge: Restoring an ancient 'lost landscape'
20 January 2014 Last updated at 13:04 GMT
Work has begun at a beauty spot near Stourbridge to restore its original lowland heath state.
Hundreds of trees at Kinver Edge are to be cut down as part of efforts to recreate the site's Iron Age landscape.
The National Trust said it would clear a 3.4-hectare (34,000 sq m) area of woodland between January and February.
