A Boot Up The Malvern Hills
A Boot Up The Malvern Hills
  • Description
  • Related

The north-south hill range we call the Malvern Hills is unique in England, a sort of miniature mountain range of very ancient rocks that rises out of comparatively lowly territory on all sides.

Seen from afar, especially from the north-west and the east, the hills look most impressive; distant views from the east reveal Great Malvern climbing the slopes of North Hill and Worcestershire Beacon like some hill town of northern India.

The Malverns are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are cared for by the Malvern Hills Conservators, a body established in 1884 for this very purpose. The range extends about 8 miles (12.5 kms) from North Malvern southwards to Chase End Hill.

Each of the ten routes in this book are graded from Easy to More Challenging with further details of distance, height ascended and the type of terrain covered, so assisting the reader to choose a suitable route.

The walks vary from 2 to 6.25 miles and are designed to suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk.

The ten walks are: On the banks of the Severn; A great medieval park; Heart of Elgar country; Storridge and the Suckley Hills; To Worcestershire Beacon; A circuit near Evendine; Over Herefordshire Beacon to Pink Cottage; Berrow Downs, the Obelisk and Shadybank Common; Colwall to Great Malvern; On foot to Chase End Hill.

The celebrated mountaineer and photojournalist Roger Redfern was the author of forty books and his articles have appeared in publications that range from Country Life, The Lady and Woman’s World to TGO, High and the Dalesman. He wrote a regular piece for the Guardian’s Country Diary for almost thirty years. He travelled widely, from Belarus and Ukraine to Cuba, Brazil and Argentina; and from central Africa to the European Alps which he knew intimately.
