Kinver Edge is a very attractive mainly wooded elevated area ideal for short walks (up to 4 miles), with wonderful views. However, to get the most from it, you really need to take an OS Explorer map if you intend to leave the wide track that follows the ridge. I went on a Sunday morning, and it was like being... More

Wow! We followed the brown sign to the Kinver Rock Houses and were thrilled we did! Amazing houses tunnelled out of the rocks that the l;ast person moved out of in the 1960's. The area is delightful with loads of walsk, we had a cup of tea at the cafe then walked up to the Iron Age hillfort for wonderful... More

Lovely area for walking and exploring. Great for kids and dogs to run around. Hide and seek is a must. Lots of history too, so do some research. At the top there is a compass and really good views. Parking available and the village is close enough for a wander around too. Visit the best bakery in the county (lemon... More

I have walked around and over Kinver Edge many times, and it is always a lovely part of Worcestershire. The best way to see the Edge is to plan a walk that takes in the surrounding countryside and which then includes the Edge as part of the walk. I was back recently on my favourite walk in the area, which... More

had a lovely walk here through the forest and then up to the top- although the wind very nearly blew us away! It's a nice gentle walk and you are rewarded with great views of the surrounding area. You also have the choice to visit the rock houses if you feel up to it. Just be sure to wrap up... More

The edge is a great place for a short.....blow out the cobwebs walk. 3Km max either way round, great views from the top back over Kinver towards wolves and Stourbridge, only slight criticism is that there is not really enough car parking

Went here on Saturday and had a lovely walk on kinver edge. The views are great and the walks through the forest are lovely. It's best to go into kinver village for a coffee and to go to the loo before you set off! We didn't see any loos on our walk which is ok if you are a man... More

What an amazing visit. Rock house built directly into the sandstone outcrop were such an unexpected find! The whole area is steeped in history with an Iron Age fort above the houses and Kinver edge (natural escarpment in woodland) alongside. If you like to discover how people lived, walking and all things historical give this spot an hour of you... More

Alongside kinder edge, you will find the Rock Houses, where until the mid 60's people still lived. Originally caves, over the centuries, people have created homes, high above the then dirty & often unhealthy homes built for mill & foundry workers. Living above the villages, rock house occupiers, lived healthier & longer lives. The National Trust staff are friendly and... More
