Length: 10.1 mi • Est. 5 h 4 m
This walk in the Malvern Hills area of outstanding natural beauty offers sweeping views of the surrounding areas and is well marked. This trail covers Worcestershire Beacon - the highest point of the Malvern Hills. The Worcestershire Beacon has historically been used as a location for signalling beacons. In 1588 it formed part of a chain of warning fires which were lit when the Spanish Armada attempted to invade England. On the summit is a viewfinder identifying the hills to be seen on a clear day. This is a good walk with some quite strenuous inclines. The outward hike is generally over the top of four peaks then the return is around the edge through wooded areas. Breathtaking, stunning views.Show more

Length: 4.4 mi • Est. 2 h 12 m
A circular walk around Lickey and Barnt Green in the Bromsgrove district of Worcestershire. The walk begins in the beautiful Lickey Hills Country Park, a beautiful site which includes coniferous plantations and mixed woodland, with sculptures, playgrounds and plenty of benches allowing you to make the most of this tranquil setting. The walk continues through the destination village of Barnt Green before fields and bridleway tracks lead you to get a glimpse of the beautiful Upper Bittell Reservoir. The final stretch passes the beautiful parish church in Cofton Hackett before a steep climb back into the Lickey Hills. The route has several moderate gradients throughout, plus one steep climb towards the end. The paths are mostly stone tracks or unsurfaced and some stretches can be very muddy in winter or after periods of rain. There are no stiles or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate some flights of steps, gates and one kissing gate. Dogs are welcome in the country park and this route makes a great dog walk. Allow 2.5 hours. Show more
