  • The area

    The area

    The area itself is rich in culture with historic towns and villages such as Bewdley, Cleobury Mortimer and Bridgnorth.

    The Severn Valley railway runs from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and takes you back in time to the golden age of steam. There's no shortage of places to visit with local castles, museums and some superb places to eat in the area. There’s plenty to explore!

Wyre Forest Landscape Partnership

Caring, managing and maintaining our Forest for all to enjoy.

Hello we are the Wyre Forest Landscape Partnership

The Wyre Forest Landscape Partnership is a new body set up to help look after the largest contiguous area of ancient woodlands in England. We want to ensure that we keep Wyre as a special place for our wildlife and for people particularly by finding new ways to use the timber it grows within our local economy and community

The Wyre Forest Landscape Partnership is made up of private, public, community and voluntary bodies covering the nine Forest parishes within and surrounding this stunning six thousand acre ancient woodland.

The partnership is working to:

  • Conserve and restore the built and natural heritage;
  • Create a sustainable future for the forest;
  • Encourage more people to enjoy, learn about and take part in their landscape;
  • Promote sustainable, profitable forestry which can support the needs of our society and community;
  • Evolve plans across the whole forest area for wildlife, conservation, recreation, tourism and heritage;
  • Restore the forest's links to the local economy and community.


John Ruskin was given a piece of the Wyre Forest which he had a vision for.   This area of the Forest is still called Ruskinland and owned today by the charity he established, The Guild Of St George who sit on our Partnership. 

It is our hope that the Wyre Forest can continue to be, in the words of John Ruskin, a ‘beautiful, peaceful, and fruitful' place.
