At 900 acres Arrow Valley Country Park is the largest area of open space in Redditch - and it’s not just a beautiful environment, it’s packed full of things to see and do. The park is set over 2.5 miles of countryside, between Forge Mill Needle Museum, the protected ancient monument of medieval Bordesley Abbey and the Abbey Stadium to the north and Washford Mill to the south.
Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch is an unusual and fascinating place to visit. This historic site illustrates the rich heritage of the needle and fishing tackle industries. Models and recreated scenes provide a vivid illustration of how needles were once made, and how Redditch once produced 90% of the world's needles.

The eight acres of gardens and park encircling the house were designed by landscape architect Charles Chesshire as a succession of distinct ‘garden rooms’. While each of these rooms has its individual character, defined by landscape, planting style and colour scheme, there is a strong sense of continuity.
Coppicing has been reintroduced to the wood and there is a small area of heathland. Dominating the hillside along ‘the Slough’, this splendid woodland reserve is teeming with diversity, its mixed geology giving rise to distinct woodland types.
