The Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark

The Geopark covers 1250 square kilometres and takes in parts of the four counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire. The Abberley and Malvern Hills is one of 10 Geoparks in the United Kingdom, and one of over 80 Geoparks globally.  Like ours, they are driven by organisations seeking to celebrate their geological heritage and achieve sustainable development through geotourism. The Geopark is currently a partnership of 18 organisations.

In the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark you will find outstanding geology that spans 700 million years of our Earth’s history. This, coupled with dramatic landscapes and a wealth of ecological, historical, and cultural gems, makes the Abberley and Malvern Hills a truly unique Geopark.

The vision is for a Geopark that can be enjoyed by everyone and allows people from all walks of life the opportunity to experience geology and to appreciate the importance of their geological heritage. The Geopark exists to promote excellence in geoconservation and to make a contribution to local economies through sustainable geotourism.
