Eastnor Obelisk in new Malvern Hills National Landscape logo

22 November 2023

As of today, all Areas of outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) in England and Wales have been renamed as National Landscapes.

The new name reflects their national importance; the vital contribution they make to protect the nation from the threats of climate change, nature depletion and the wellbeing crisis, whilst also creating greater understanding and awareness for the work that they do.

This is a significant milestone for the UK and the next step in fully realising the National Landscapes’ vision to be the leading exemplars of how thriving, diverse communities can work with and for nature in the UK: restoring ecosystems, providing food, storing carbon to mitigate the effects of climate change, safeguarding against drought and flooding, whilst also nurturing people’s health and wellbeing.

Eastnor Estate sits at the foot of the former Malvern Hills AONB and this will now be known as the Malvern Hills National Landscape. Every National Landscape has a new logo, sharing a similar look, and we’re thrilled that the Eastnor Obelisk appears in the Malvern Hills National Landscape logo. Inspired by an image of a dog walker on the Malvern Hills, the new logo displays the distinctive earthworks of British Camp as well as the Obelisk.
