May Hill - Gloucestershire Outdoor

Gloucestershire Places to Visit Outdoor - May Hill

The summit and surrounding area consists of a wide expanse of open grassland, bracken and gorse with boggy areas and pools. The hill is capped by a clump of pine trees (not NT), planted in 1887 to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. It is now the location of annual May Day celebrations. May Hill Common covers 30 hectares of common land acquired by the NT in 1988. This attractive area of bracken and developing trees (mainly birch, oak and crab apple) is still grazed by the commoners' ponies, pigs and occasionally sheep. There are beautiful views to the north and west across Herefordshire. Free to visit.
