Lickey Hills Country Park
Off Old Birmingham Road
The Lickey Hills (known locally as simply The Lickeys) are a range of hills in Worcestershire, England, eleven miles to the south-west of the centre of Birmingham near the villages of Lickey and Barnt Green. The hills are a popular country park area and they afford panoramic views over much of the surrounding countryside. The hills had been a royal hunting reserve belonging to the Manor of Bromsgrove. Free public
open access began in 1888 when Rednal Hill was bought by the Birmingham Society for the Preservation of Open Space. The Society
then presented it to the City of Birmingham in trust. Pinfield Wood and
Bilberry Hill were then leased at a nominal rent. Cofton Hill, Lickey
Warren and Pinfield Wood were bought in 1920. The final stage in
restoring public access to the area was the purchase of the Rose Hill
Estate from the Cadbury family in 1923. One of Birmingham City Council's best loved parks - a green flag winner!
