Walk across 650-million-year-old rocks

Malvern Hills, Herefordshire

The Malvern Hills is a range of ancient rocks that straddle the Herefordshire and Worcestershire border.

You can stride out along the full nine-mile length of these hills taking in all the summits of the ridge including both the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Beacons. On a clear day you can see for miles across this part of Western England. Other walks on the hills allow you to explore the earthworks and defensive ditches of the British Camp Iron Age Fort.

Another feature of the Malverns is the many (around 88) natural springs. Holy Well, where the water is now bottled, above Malvern Wells was the most popular spring during the 18th century. Then visitors discovered St Ann’s Well, which was closer to the bath houses and water cure establishments of Great Malvern. Today you can still visit St Ann’s Well and its cafe to sample the waters.
