Welcome to the Malvern Hills AONB

Welcome to the website for the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The area is famed for its dramatic hills and for the pure spring water that flows from them, but it offers so much more besides. A rich cultural heritage of forts, castles and priories stands proudly from this landscape of ancient woodland, rolling pastures and wild, open commons. The geology of the AONB is varied and fascinating and the area is home to a diversity of locally and nationally important wildlife.

The AONB designation signifies that the natural beauty of this area is of national importance. A Partnership of local and national interests works together to conserve and enhance the area through the implementation of a five year AONB Management Plan. The Malvern Hills AONB is one of a family of 46 similarly designated areas across the United Kingdom.

The New MHAONB Management Plan 2014-2019 is now complete and is available to view online here.

The management plan incorporates the views of a wide range of public, private and voluntary bodies and is the key document through which the AONB Partnership expresses its intentions for conserving and enhancing the special character of the area. We hope you find it useful.


Access the latest Research and Reports commissioned by the AONB Partnership here. The two most recent studies cover the topics of potential new woodland creation and the darkness of the skies in the AONB.
