Barrow Hill with its church and summit with a large shining steel cross forms a prominent skyline feature of the Black Country to the West of Dudley. Below the summit on its flanks are large quarries.
Barrow Hill is a prominent hill of hard dark igneous (volcanic and intrusive) rocks of an olivine basalt type that burst its way into the local country rocks about 300 million years ago.

Yes the Cross is made of steel, but has been covered with graffiti!
