Residents have been invited to step out and explore the history and wildlife of Worcestershire this June. 

Wyre Forest District Council's Rangers are asking people to join them on a guided walk around Burlish Meadows and Burlish Top Nature Reserve between Kidderminster and Stourport. 

The walk will be led by the rangers who will discuss how they manage these important sites for the benefit of visitors and wildlife.

They will also talk about future plans for the area and its important link with D-Day 80 years ago. 

A spokesperson for Wyre Forest Rangers said: "People can also learn about our conservation grazing programme with sheep and cattle, our recent hedge restoration where we laid an historic hedge in the midland style and discover how to get involved with our countryside volunteers.

"The walk will include some steep slopes and uneven ground so walking boots and outdoor clothing are recommended.

"Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome but we regret that this walk is unsuitable for pushchairs."

Guests are asked to meet at 9.45am at Burlish Meadows car park off the Kingsway, Stourport, DY13 8QB. 

The walk is free to attend but people will need to pre-book a place as numbers are limited.
