On the horizon to the right is the Church of St. Bartholomew and moving to the right are the Colton Hills

…There was an ancient track leading from Bushbury to Upper Penn called the “Penwie”, which doubtless meant Penn way. It ran along the old Cannock Road from northeast to southwest and joined the old Stafford Road at Bushbury, from where it went to the site of present day Wolverhampton. The track ran southwards across the centre of the modern City and near to present day Pool Street to run parallel with the Penn Road to Goldthorn Hill, which was called “Goldhoard”. From here it ran across the Colton Hills to the site of St. Bartholomew’s Church.
