We now have 26 trails and printed guides available over the two counties. Some have become so popular with groups that we have decided to offer a programme of guided walks.

For the next twelve months there are seven walking trails that are available to be booked within this project. They are Abberley Hill and Churches, Worcester Cathedral, Severn Valley Railway, Midsummer Hill and Raggedstone Hill in the Malverns, the Geopark Way, Kington and Whitman’s Hill Quarry.

There is a fee of £3 per person with a minimum charge of £25. The fee includes a copy, if available, of the full colour information guide for the trail for each person. Group numbers are restricted to a maximum of 25 people.

Just to whet your appetite:

  • On the Abberley trail after an invigorating walk over the Hill there is afternoon tea in the Manor Arms in the centre of this lovely village
  • Spectacular scenery and some of the oldest rock in England await you on the Malvern Hills trails
  • In Worcester cathedral beautifully carved stones from around the world sit alongside the local building stones that make up the structure of the cathedral. The added bonus is that this trail is not affected by the weather!
  • The Kington trail is a pleasant walk through wonderful scenery alongside the River Arrow
  • The Geopark Way is an 80 mile walking trail with fabulous geology and scenery but we have chosen a special small section for this guided trail
  • The Severn Valley Railway offers some excellent geology from the comfort of a railway carriage. A walk from one of the stations takes you to the old mines and quarries with their fascinating geological history.
