What's on

Is it time to kick the dust off your walking boots? Are your kids bouncing off the walls? We've got activities for everyone at Kinver Edge this summer, so let's get outside.

Don't miss

  • The children's natural play trail, just follow signs for the Adder Adventure Trail
  • The volunteers' veg plot outside the Rock Houses, can you recognise what's growing?
  • Nanny's Rock, named after a reclusive inhabitant who made herbal potions. You can buy a map from the cafe for directions to this beautiful look-out point.
  • The brand new toposcope in the Iron Age Hillfort. Which way is Stourbridge? Or New York?

We have abandoned caves, restored Victorian caves, even a cave with a tea-room in! Look at the ceilings to see the sandy layers that prove how these homes used to be sand dunes.

31. Hunt for bugs

Our woodland is home to all sorts of creepy crawlies, and the heath has over 300 types of moth! Check under logs, amongst the gorse, and in the sky around you for brilliant bugs.
