MWF93 Villages below the West Side, Sunday 2 June

From Old Hollow, we pass through the Outdoor Centre (an advanced adventure children’s centre) and continuing through the working Croft Farm, we come out at a view point facing West.

Down and up to Bank Farm on the hillside, and then we descend through meadows and woods to the historic village of Mathon. We cross farmers’ fields to the impressive Cradley Church with a 1,000 year old yew tree. Lunch stop here and time to visit the church.

Our way back takes us via the hamlet of Vinesend, through a wooded valley, up to a sports field used by West Malverners, and back to Old Hollow.

Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink
