Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
The Malvern Hills is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The primary purpose of AONB designation is to conserve and enhance natural beauty of the area, although improving knowledge and appreciation about the historic environment and natural geodiversity is an increasingly important role. Land within the AONB is managed by a variety of individuals and bodies, ranging from large private estates to small voluntary Trusts. The AONB Partnership does not own or manage any land itself, but provides a broad framework for the care of the area and to support those individuals and organisations that are involved in looking after it.
