The large Worcestershire village of Clent, with a population of more than 2500, sits at the south-western edge of the West Midlands conurbation, though separated from it if only by a few miles. It might be more accurate to say the villages of Clent, plural, given the hilly country in which it lies has meant groups of houses and little hamlets have grown up over the years around the focal point of the village church of St Leonardís, the five most significant being Upper Clent where that church is found, Walton Pool, Adams Hill, Holy Cross, and Lower Clent. Anomalously Clent was until 1844 an enclave part of Staffordshire, an arrangement dating back to Norman days when local authority was sometimes based on force rather than geography. Though roughly central to a quadrilateral whose points are Halesowen, Stourbridge, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster, Clent is a very rural spot, the huge natural bonus for visitors here being the Clent Hills (two of which are owned and maintained now by the National Trust), a popular spot for walking since Victorian times brought easier transport to the masses and still a favourite destination for Brummies in the know - Adrian Chiles recently lauded the area. Sadly the grass-tobogganing that was once practiced here is now banned to prevent erosion of the hillsides, but there are other highlights like the buzzards and redstarts that be seen with luck and timing, and of course the views that depending on the weather can extend to the Malvern Hills and even the Black Mountains. Clent has several pubs and restaurants, more than its size would normally merit, thanks in part to the visitor trade. Whitewashed cottages and solid red-brick houses dot the leafy roadways, and there is a tiny village green, but as so often the most significant building is the parish church, here a comfortably sized gothic structure with a pleasant lych-gate framing its front view and a ring of eight bells in its tower.
