Crickley Hill Country Park
Situated on the Cotswold scarp there are extensive views over the Severn Valley. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with nature conservation. The park also has geological & archaeological interest, a visitor centre although seasonal opening and way-marked trails through mature beech woodland. Part of the site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM) which has been intensively excavated over a period of 25 years. The result is a detailed documentation of the archaeological interest of the hillfort area. Crickley Hill is also of major geological interest due to the limestone outcrops around its boundary.
The country park is popular with walkers and dog owners, but its large size means that it never feels crowded.
There is a centrally located picnic area and throughout the country park you will find benches should you need to stop for a breather.
