T02A By the Cotswold Line, Monday 29 May
Rail Trails Worcestershire is a new initiative that will eventually provide a walking route connecting all stations in Worcestershire. The 3-day walk follows a 32 mile section along the ‘Cotswold Line’ from Great Malvern station to Evesham.
The first stage is Great Malvern to Worcester Foregate Street. Leaving Gt Malvern station, we make our way through Gt Malvern to Malvern Link station and then pick up the Three Choirs Way, which we broadly follow for much, but not all, of the way as far as Powick. We pass Morgan Motors Visitor Centre and Madresfield Court and emerge onto Old Hills with views to former Powick Asylum. Our path takes us between two former gatehouses to Stanbrook Abbey in Callow End and then on to Powick Old Bridge and Mill. The Monarch’s Way takes us alongside the River Teme to its confluence with the River Severn and on to the Diglis footbridge, through the city to Foregate St.
Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty to drink.
