Description: Hidden deep within the rolling Worcestershire countryside, Clinker Wood is surrounded by further dense woodland but in spite of this seclusion remains readily accessible via excellent woodland tracks.
Not surprisingly the wildlife is much at home in this undisturbed environment. Roe and muntjac deer are often seen browsing the undergrowth. Their distinctive barking call resonates beneath the high woodland canopy of ash, birch and beech from their resting places in the dense thickets of hawthorn and holly.
Bluebells and celandines populate the grassy clearings and paths that meander through the woods, well used by the wildlife as foraging routes, or on their way to the nearby canal from which the wood takes its name; clinker built meaning the method of overlapping planks to construct a hull, often used on canal boats.

Access: The wood is accessed over a very good track that leads from the road, past a few houses, through a set of three gates and to the entrance to the wood, marked with a ridestop.  There is room to park a car inside the wood.

Public access: None. There are no public footpaths within or near the wood

Sporting rights: Understood to be included.

Mineral rights: Included, except as reserved by statute.

Official designations: Within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone, but no other official designations known

Boundaries:  The boundaries are formed by the access track for Clinker Wood, and other adjacent woods, and are marked with blue paint.

Local area and history:  For generations the traffic of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal has passed through this tranquil spot as part of the proud industrial heritage of the West Midlands. Although these days there is no commercial traffic on the canal, the waterway is still used and enjoyed by anglers and ramblers and other nature enthusiasts having carried its final commercial cargo in the 1950s, taking supplies of chocolate crumb to the Cadburys factory near Birmingham.
Clinker Wood is superbly located deep within glorious countryside yet within easy reach of the large population centres of the West Midlands. Nearby Redditch and Bromsgrove are easily accessible for any supplies required for a family camping adventure in the woods.

Photographs: were taken in 2014 (the first photograph only) and February 2023.
