Shrawley Wood

Visitor information

Discover the hidden gem of Shrawley Wood

Situated near the banks of the River Severn, to the north of Worcester, Shrawley Wood is peaceful and picturesque.

Known locally as ‘Bluebell Wood’ it unsurprisingly, has a fantastic showing of bluebells and other spring wildflowers - it is a real treat to visit in April or May.

Shrawley Wood is the largest area of small-leafed lime tree woodland in the country and so is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Explore the stepping stones across Dick Brook in the north or discover the ancient site of Shrawley Castle on Oliver’s Mount in the south.

Shrawley Wood is a real jewel of the Worcestershire countryside.
