Description

Green Flag Award winning Country Park. Teashop and toilets. 3 way-marked trails. Parking at Alveley and Highley. Located on National Cycle Network (Route 45). Play area. Request stop on the Severn Valley Railway.

In the peaceful, scenic valley of the River Severn, the Severn Valley Country Park offers over 51 hectares of beautiful countryside and wonderful views. The Park has been awarded the Green Flag Award making it one of the top parks in the UK.
 
For many years, the area was utilised for quarrying and the mining of coal which was then transported to industrial centres using the river and later the railway. The first mine shafts were sunk in Highley in 1870, with the production switching to Alveley in 1936. After almost one hundred years, the mine closed in 1969. Work commenced to reclaim the area in 1986 and the Country Park was officially opened in 1992.
