MALVERN WALKING
FESTIVAL

Malvern Walking Festival is over once again.


As usual the Festival was over 9 days
The dates were
Saturday 24th May to Sunday 1st June 2014

Due to popular demand we once again included
The Malvern Hills End-to-End, the End-to-End-And-Back
and the Worcestershire-Way-in-a-day


There were at least 4 guided walks most days

WE INCLUDED A NEW 59 Mile, 6 DAY DISCOVERY TRAIL

It ran from Sat 24th May to Fri 30th (free day on Tuesday): the walk started at the Shropshire Hills, visiting Long Mynd, Stipperstones, Wenlock Edge, Clun Valley and the Clee Hills - finishing back at the Malvern Hills, included in the booking price was transport from Malvern to the start points and back to Malvern at the finish of each day's walk.

We had several other new long walks as well as lots of choice for more relaxed walking. Themes covered botany, natural history, geology, local history - such as the Victorian Water Cure, famous people - Elgar always gets a mention & famous buildings - including Madresfield Court. All the walks took place in countryside of breathtaking beauty - most of the hills are in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much of it also designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

We once again used our quick & easy online booking system
we will also be using on-line Feedback forms following the Festival.

The beautiful Malvern Hills are the jewel in the crown of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This 9 days of walking was your opportunity to enjoy some of our breathtakingly beautiful views in the company of others. You would have had a friendly guide to both lead the way and to indicate points of interest you may normally have missed. You will have seen views that have not changed greatly since Edward Elgar walked his beloved Malvern Hills and was inspired to write his music all those years ago. Some of these walks were planned to appeal to families as well as serious walkers. Most walks have some value to walkers who are also interested in natural history, local history and the geology of this beautiful area.
