Don't miss

  • Bacon butties at Nimmings car park cafe, but come hungry!
  • Bluebells in spring, like a pool reflecting the blue sky overhead
  • Getting your bearings at the toposcope. Is that Birmingham or Bromsgrove?
  • The magnificent old beech tree on the easy access route from Nimmings, and the majestic spread of it's enormous branches

Standing proud along many of our footpaths, stately foxgloves are a favourite of bumble bees. Peer inside to catch sight of the stripy pollinators.

Summer fit

Guided walks throughout the summer mean there's plenty of ways to get fit on Clent Hills, with everything from a gentle three mile stroll to a ten mile ramble! 

Voices from Clent and the Archway project

Who’s watching you from the top of our welcome arch?

Who’s watching you from the top of our welcome arch?

A carved wooden archway welcomes visitors to Clent, and looking closely you will see the words and thoughts of local walkers inscribed onto the wood. These words come from 'Poem to Clent', a dedication to Clent Hills written by the appointed Artist in Residence Helen Calcutt, forged from personal reflections and interviews with visitors. The Archway stands over the easy access path, recently renovated by our volunteer team to ensure everyone can enjoy these much-loved Hills.
