Long Description:
The summits of the two largest hills, Clent Hill and Walton Hill are now the property of the National Trust. In 1974, the hills became a country park, managed by Hereford & Worcester County Council under the Countryside Act 1968. In 1995, management reverted to the National Trust, which set up a new Advisory Committee in 2000.

The Clent Hills are also well-known for their role in the legend of St. Kenelm, who was murdered on a hunting trip at the north eastern slopes of Clent Hill in 821 AD. The church of St. Kenelm in the parish of Romsley marks the site of his murder. The church is the starting point of the sixty mile walk St Kenelm's Trail.

Parking, café and toilet facilities are available at Nimmings Wood car park (café and toilets are closed on Mondays only), N52 25.492 W002 05.561 (pay & display NT members free), at Walton Hill, N52 25.216 W002 05.088 (Free) and at Adams Hill, N52 24.980 W002 06.581 (Free).
