Malvern Hills South (LDU 20)

Current condition:

  • Scrub and woodland encroachment. These southern high hills have greater evidence of woodland surrounding their bare summits than the northern hills
  • There is incursion of scrub and bracken on the hills themselves and in adjacent fields
  • Partial enclosure of lower slopes
  • Visitor pressure is evident from paths in the vegetation, but is generally less acute than in the higher central and northern hills
  • Former quarries are conspicuously colonised by trees and shrubs
