We have been caring for the Malvern HIlls and surrounding commons since we were established in 1884 by an Act of Parliament, and are a registered charity. 'Malvern Hills Trust is the working name of the Malvern Hills Conservators (registered charity 515804).'

The beautiful Malvern Hills are managed and cared for by The Malvern Hills Trust our local conservation organisation, their aims are :-

  • Conservation of the Malvern Hills for future generations
  • Prevent encroachment
  • Protect the rights of the Commoners
  • Conservation of the natural aspect of the Malvern Hills
  • Keep the land open and unbuilt on for the enjoyment and pleasure of the public

The area of land under The Malvern Hills Trust's jurisdiction is approximately 3,000 acres. It is estimated there are more than 100 miles of footpaths covering this conservation area.

Malvern's national importance was recognised in 1959 when it was declared an official Area of Outstanding National Beauty. Within this area are 12 official Sites of Special Scientific Interest - including the entire ridge of the Malvern Hills.

Staff from the Malvern Hills Trust and volunteers work incredibly hard at looking after and conserving the Malvern Hills and surrounding areas, continually cutting down saplings, coppicing trees and clearing bracken. The importance of this conservation and keeping vegetation down is to encourage butterflies, insects and wild flowers back onto our hills, and at the same time conserve its stunning profile.

Although the prime work of the Malvern Hills Trust is the conservation of the Malvern Hills, there is a multitude of other tasks that are undertaken. With the recent storms and heavy rainfall, blocked roads and paths caused from fallen trees have had to be cleared too.

With the ever increasing amount of visitors to the Malvern Hills, the Malvern Hills Trust encourage the use of some of the lesser known parking areas - with better signage and information boards other desirable areas of the Malvern Hills can be promoted and enjoyed, helping to alleviate the overcrowded British Camp area.

The Malvern Hills Trust owns, protects and manages the unique cultural heritage, wildlife and geology of this iconic English landscape for the benefit of the local community and the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year.
