Where
Beautiful all year around, the Clent hills have been popular with day visitors for over 200 years.

The Clent Hills were once part of the great Mercian forest in the region and still contain the remains of an Iron Age hillfort.  There are a number of separate hills within the range, the largest of which are Clent Hill and Walton Hill.  The grounds of nearby Hagley Hall at one time extended into the hills and Lord Lyttelton of Hagley Hall had numerous follies built in the area for the amusement of his guests including a mock castle, the Wychbury Obelisk and the famous Four Stones Megalithic folly at the summit of Clent Hill.  The hills are higher than they seem at first and if the weather is kind it is possible to see the Welsh Black Mountains on the horizon.

The Clent Hills are located northwest of Bromsgrove and southeast of Stourbridge.  They are believed to attract around a million visitors each year making them the most popular non-paying attraction in Worcestershire.  There are numerous trails across the hills with each turn providing another spectacular view of the Worcestershire countryside.  A toposcope at the summit of Clent Hill identifies the many and varied landmarks that can be seen on a clear day.

The Clent Hills are in the care of the National Trust who also have visitor centre at Nimmings Wood Car Park on the slopes of the hills – an ideal place to leave the car and enjoy refreshments. Please note that while it is possible to see the sham castle from the hills, many of the original follies remain on private land.
