Welcome to Upper Arley Parish Council

The Parish covers a mainly rural area in the north of Worcestershire, in the Wyre Forest District. The River Severn flows through the Parish, and quite a large area, particularly to the west of the river, forms part of the ancient Forest of Wyre.

The Parish itself is made up of three small villages - Upper Arley itself, Pound Green and Shatterford.

Arley lies on the banks of the river, and welcomes large numbers of visitors, particularly to its church, the Arley Arboretum, and the peaceful banks of the Severn.

Shatterford is well known for the Shatterford Lakes and Wildlife Park, and the Bellmans Cross Public House and restaurant.

Pound Green has its ancient Common, as well as attracting cyclists and walkers to the forest glades and paths.

A feature of the Parish is the Severn Valley Railway, running along the west bank of the River Severn. Arley Station brings thousands of visitors to the area every year.
