The award winning village of Kinver and the surrounding countryside is steeped in history dating back thousands of years. The centre of Kinver village was planned in the feudal 13th century during the reign of the Plantagenet Monarchs, and the original burgage plots along the High Street remain today. There are plenty of Tudor Houses and Inns which have won awards for their restoration. The village was within the Royal Forest of Kinver, and nearby Stourton Castle was the Royal Hunting Lodge and Royal Forester’s lodge for King John. Kinver Forest was part of a large forest which included Wyre and Morfe Forests. Whilst the forest is a shadow of it’s once large expanse, Kinver can be easilly located with good accuracy in Google Earth from a great height.

Kinver Edge is a woodland sandstone ridge high above the village offering fantastic views across the West Midlands and surrounding counties, now owned by the National Trust. The sandstone rocks date back 230 million years to when dinosaurs roamed the planet, and are said to be the last inhabitated caves in Europe. The Martindale Caves were restored and reopened to the public in 2012. The Staffs & Worcs canal passes through the village at Dunsley, and is popular for boaters passing through on a boating holiday, walkers, cyclists and anglers.
