Event Description

Walk No: MWF16
On and Around the Northern Hills
5 miles; allow 3 hours

A hilly, varied, and very scenic route over all the tops of the northern Malvern Hills, returning on a low level loop. We climb quite steeply above a massive, defunct granite quarry, to reach North Hill, and continue to the Hills’ highest point, i.e. the Worcestershire Beacon, to enjoy 360 deg views. We drop down to the historic St Ann’s Well and learn about Malvern’s “water cure” heritage. Our return loop is on a contour path on the east side of the ridge.
