We pass through the Outdoor Centre (an advanced adventure children’s centre) and continuing through the working Croft Farm, we come out at a view point facing West. Down and up to Bank Farm on the hillside, then we descend through meadows and woods to the historic Mathon village. We cross farmers’ fields to the impressive Cradley Church with a 1000 year yew tree. Lunch stop here and time to visit. Our way back takes us via the hamlet of Vinesend, through a wooded valley, and up to a sports field used by West Malverners, back to Old Hollow.
