As one of the largest small-leaved lime woodlands in the country, Shrawley Wood really is something special. On top of that it has a spectacular display of bluebells April/May.
Visitors may park behind the New Inn pub (small charge applies), but are asked to patronise the pub in return!
What do other visitors say?

Lovely woods but zero parking apart from the pub - if it was a reasonable parking charge they'd make a lot of money. As it is it's putting people off from enjoying the woods. Such a terrible waste of a local place to enjoy with the whole family. Wyre Forest charge a much smaller amount which is fair.

A brilliant walk. The woods are just beautiful and on a summers day, I can think of few better places to be in The Midlands.
Went to The New Inn and the landlord was brilliant: he told us where to go and recommended a good route, showing me a map on the wall. He wrote me out a parking ticket but didn't charge, though I would've been happy to pay. At the end of the walk, we went back to the pub and had lunch, which was also great. I find it hard to believe, reading one or two comments above, that anyone would have a problem paying a small charge to park at the pub. The man has to earn a living and why should he give free parking. He was nothing but helpful towards my wife and I and I would recommend other walkers seek his friendly advice as we did.

I will give this blue walk 10/10 from the new inn.
I am a member of the Kidderminster BBKA I saw three bee hives that looked neglected could I take the bees and give them a good home.
