Covering four square miles, Suckley is geographically one of the largest parishes in Worcestershire, but also one of the least populated with only around 250 residences. Seven farms utilise the greater part of the available land, producing apples, beef, cereals, hops, milk, oil seed rape, pears and potatoes. The eastern side of the Parish is part of the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within Suckley, which embraces the hamlet of Longley Green, there are several dozen micro-businesses operating from private homes, ranging from beauty therapy to furniture restoration, from computer maintenance to interior design, from motor mechanics to plumbing. Most of the population in employment are commuting to Malvern, Worcester, Hereford, Cheltenham or the West Midlands.
This map board was unveiled by Suckley Parish Council Chairman Walter Huband in 2008, commemorating his greatly appreciated 44 years as elected chairman.
