Event Description

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 highest point, i.e. the Worcestershire Beacon, to enjoy 360⁰ views.

Dropping down to the historic St Ann’s Well, we learn about Malvern’s “water cure” heritage. Our return loop is on a contour path on the east side of the ridge.
