MWF41 Mathon and Malvern Hills Geology and Landscape, Tuesday 28 May

A circular walk taking in a central section of the Malvern hills and returning through rolling Herefordshire countryside. We will visit the Worcestershire Beacon and the medieval churches at Cradley and Mathon. There will be a gentle introduction to the geology of the area and how that has shaped the landscape. There will be plenty of time to check out the show of Spring flowers and listen to the birdsong!

There’s a small number of stiles to negotiate and we can expect some sections of muddy ground and moderately steep slopes.

Total ascent/descent 500m (1,640 feet)
Maximum elevation 425m (1,395 feet)

Bring snacks, a packed lunch and drinks.

There is a pub at the end where we can take some refreshments for anybody who is interested.
